There is a standard packaging format: LSB has standardized RPM3. Installing RPM packages on Debian works great, by using alien. IMHO, an installation GUI should work as a front end to RPM or Alien. We are using this approach with the ThinLinc installation program, and it works great.
Besides, using RPM is a requirement if you want to be RHEL compatible, if I remember correctly.
