I have now successful reports on these platforms:
 * debian sid
 * debian etch
 * ubuntu breezy (5.10)
 * ubuntu pre-Dapper
I'd like to hear whether it works on debian stable (sarge), but besides
that, I think the package is fine.

So Neil, do you want the have such a .deb along the .tar.gz in the
magazine? I think it would be a nice thing for Debian and Ubuntu users,
especially for those who have not much experience with the console -
these just need to install the .deb and find XaraLX in their Debian

I plan to provide a .deb for the released 0.4 shortly after I read the
announcement here.
