Interesting, as I happen to have a dedicated "Wheezy" box here at home :)  No GUI, but I can fix that easily enough :)

Based on experience with other Linux flavors, my expectation is that we'll need separate .deb files for 12.4 (LTS version) and 12.10 (and 13.4 when it's released).

This, btw, is one of the issues with the way things are done in Linux. My Windows binaries run on anything from XP 32bit (Oct 2001) to Win8 64bit (as of today).
The fact that we usually can't run Fedora X binaries on Fedora X+1 (or Ubuntu X on Ubuntu X+1) is just pathetic.
