+1 - or more if I get more votes :)

In particular, getting it included in the RPMs and DEBs will make a big
difference. I don't particularly care if they're in the source tarball, but
the fact that it's quite a PITA to get them installed if your starting
point is RPM or DEB is a real bummer today.

If they were either to be in the varnish package, or just there were an
extra package like varnish-modules or something like that available in the
same repositories, that would be extremely helpful.
