It is also in Debian and was also true for Mandrake last time I looked over three years ago.
However package managers don't interact well with SQL. And furthermore many of those programs are horribly packaged and are a pain to package correctly: no separation between the basic schema and data and the extra data the user adds.
For instance, have you seen any such sql app where the web app does not have full control over the database?
