At the AtypI talk, Adobe indicated that this release is still rough and
does not comes "batteries included".

It's a major milestone and will likely to be tremendously useful but
it's not quite ready yet.
The tree structure, paths and the internal libraries are not likely to
be made with all the Debian policy and best practises in mind or widely
tested either.
One issue is actually getting it to use the system python properly.

I'm looking into it as well over the next few days.

Can I recommend that we concentrate on helping getting it to run
properly on Debian via friendly upstream patches / pull requests
instead of just maintaining a Debian-specific fork?
