Interesting question - I haven't seen too many "local" packages
yet - most people who take the trouble to roll their own .debs
end up adding them to the distribution anyways, so they get
thoroughly checked till they end up in stable.

The only stuff that I more or less regularly install that isn't in
the packages tree (yet) are the japanese
packages - and those that I can get to work seem to work
quite fine.
