[cfe-dev] Why no Debian package for libc++?

This is something that the Debian LLVM/Clang team would handle directly. 
I completely agree with your request and seeing as Debian is proving 
Debian FreeBSD it makes sense for them to have this available for both 
Debian Linux and Debian based FreeBSD.

I've cc'd the Debian Packaging Team on it.
