Debian policy (as well as I understand it) does not allow the packaging
of non-free apps, libraries, etc. (there used to be a section for
non-free items, but there was a sort of palace revolution, and it was
removed). I believe HBCI is a proprietary format, and on that basis
could not be included. Ubuntu uses Debian packages. On the other hand,
Debianizing applications is relatively easy to do.
