The reprepro tool is utterly wonderful. (Although I used the backported Sarge version, rather than the older one). Expect an article on the Debian Administration website shortly.
Now I have an "incoming" directory I can upload new package builds to, and have them magically migrate into the relevent section.
The other significant change is that now I can host packages with Arch: All, as well as i386. This is useful as I distribute several perl scripts/libraries which were previously unavailable to non-x86 users.
