In theory, that would be possible, if somebody invested the work into  

Which raises another question in my eyes: Personally I always wondered  
why Residual is a "subproject" of ScummVM. To me it never made much  
sense, it seems more reasonable to setup a separate SF.net (or  
whatever) project for it and move it all there. Have its own  
respository, its own mailing list, its own homepage, its own set of  
developers. It copies some code from ScummVM, true, but as long as  
these files are copied anyway, there is nothing to be gained by having  
it in the same repos as ScummVM.

Can't the debian .debs be used on Ubunutu straight?

Otherwise, it would be a matter of "somebody" (you?) setting up a  
"cross compiler environment" from Debian to Ubunutu; the difficulty of  
which might range from trivial )if the locations and versions of  
libraries etc. are identical on Ubuntu and Debian), up to nasty (if  
they differ and you thus have to install lots of Ubuntu files into a  
fake ubuntu "build root").
