I don't think one needs to approach the Debian guys directly. I think 
one should only need to speak to the people that put together the "pre 
packaged" Debian 6 for Pi OS image. That OS image comes pre-configured 
with a 'pi' user, and the desktop already contains icons for Python 
development, and some sample Python games.

I bought the OS image on a 4GB SD card, but there is about 2GB free on 
that SD card. So ample space for the libX11-dev and libXft-dev packages, 
and the 5MB needed for the FPC+fpGUI archive.
