With this kind of approach one could be one apt-get away from having
an Android developer suite installed on their ubuntu system combined
with Linaro's improvements.
OTOH as Zach mentioned, one could keep the expectation that Android
devs must complete the install steps as documented at Google, and that
further additions from linaro would be a further steps.
As long as install isn't awful, I could see either way being reasonable.

I'd sure like to think so.
