There are Debian packages also in the official Debian tree.

A lot of people use different distributions for their vservers (i use
Debian as root / Debian, Slackware, Redhat and in the future also
Mandrake, SuSE and Gentoo in vservers).
Unifying is for some people an issue, for others not. And if you don't
care about unifying to save space, the README.Debian of the Debian
packages is more than enough to get going there.
The biggest problem is (just my 2 pence) getting started, how to run
what distro in the vserver and understanding the concept and the
limitations of vserver. Mostly i think we need a howto for each and
every distribution in general (on the host, but mostly on the vserver
side), because each distro has it's specialities.
Besides, if i remember correctly, Klavs Klavsen was writing on a Gentoo
howto for vserver.
