It should be possible but it would require a lot of work.

First of all - as far as i know Debian prefers native compiling. Compiling on 
the device takes a lot of time (days?) if it's even possible. Our build system 
if targeted for cross compiling.

Second problem could be QT. I dont know if the QT in debian supports running 
on framebuffer. Now we bundle framebuffer enabled QT with Qtopia. This works 
quite good because the QT is at fixed version which we know that it works. 
Running with older/newer QT's need to be tested and any old/new bugs in those 
QT version have to be fixed.

So the answer is - yes, it should be possible, but it's unlikely to happen 
unless someone with good skills and a lot of time jumps in.
