What I was planning to do (I've yet to consult with the other maintainers on
this) was to have "sugar" be a virtual package provided by "sugar-sucrose",
so all you'd need to do would be to "apt-get install sugar" to get a
fully-functioning sugar environment. It should be trivial to rename sugar to
sugar-shell in Debian.
