It sure would make things more convenient, I agree.

See for example

Basically there are a whole pile of logistical issues, stemming mainly
from the (quite reasonable) policies around how debs are allowed to
interact with each other.

So, it's something that a lot of smart Debian people have thought about,
and no clean-enough answer has emerged yet.

It is deeply unsatisfying to me that Linux, the platform most of our
developers use, is the one with the least user-friendly Tor package
support. But it will take a lot of juggling and coordination to produce
a solution that all sides find ok.
