debian/armel a newer glibc (2.5) and gcc (4.1) than maemo. While
in mostly compatible, there is a problem with syscall(), as
existing applications in maemo give the argument to syscall() using
oldabi numbering, and the glibc expects EABI numbering.

Another issue that several of the packages in maemo are forked (gtk..),
and upgrading or accidentally pulling those packages from debian
would likely break existing applications.

But there is plans to make stuff compatible eventually.
