Unfortunately that's not quite true, at present.
What people have done is to loop mount a canned debian filesystem and chroot
to it, allowing you to use most of the debian userspace.
At least one guy took it further and used unionfs to achieve a sort-of
merged debian and android filesystem. As yet I'm unaware of debian actually
being able to install/boot on G1. I looked into this as I was interested in
a merged debian/android on FR, using android UI but with debian underneath.
No joy yet.
