This is something I'm conscious of, but currently we have no nice
solution AFAIK.

My idea of what would be a nice solution is that

- it would be trivial for the package author to produce a tarball (or
whatever) for others to download

- when a user downloaded and installed that package, the installation
would automatically take place according to the user's distribution's
packaging system.

Perhaps you're overestimating the concept, and have in fact understood
it?  What do you think you don't understand?
