Oh, I will! Thank you so much for creating this, debs just make things
that little bit easier :).

FYI, both versions are missing the default site's root directory,
/var/www/nginx-default. I don't know if you care enough to fix it for
the PPA, it certainly doesn't bother me. (Actually tested on 9.04
although I don't think that matters as the directory is missing from
the .deb package anyway.)
