Would be great to see a debian package of pluckeye on linux or debian servers

Now pluckeye is getting popular. We have a small enterprise & we would like to install pluckeye on ever client machine. But problem comes when pluckeye has to be updated. We have created standard user on every machine for our clients. We have included an entry for apt-get install in the sudoers file so that all the limited users can install a debian package from the repositories mentioned in sudoers file. We have LUKS encryption & GRUB Bootloader 2.02 password protected & BIOS locked with USB Booting disabled with CPU cases locked under surveillance 24/7.

So it's really stiff for an intruder to get admin access to our servers & client machines. As far as I know a standard user can't edit sources file to change repositories & can't inject any unverified & unsigned package at debian repositories which presents any security exploit to the system. There's a very slim chance of virus or malware attacking the linux distro.

So what we want is that since our standard users can install verified signed packages & update them it would be great to see pluckeye as a debian package. Because every time Jon releases an update we have manually unlock root account on every machine & update it as pluckeye requires access to root directories so it can't be installed by non-superusers.

Is there any scope for this in the future?

Another reason why people don't use windows for servers or cluster computing.
