2048 or 4096 for new keys? aka defaults vs. Debian

I saw a lot of activity in the Debian project about upgrading to a
4096 RSA key,
e.g. http://lists.debian.org/debian-devel-announce/2010/09/msg00003.html

However GnuPG's default is 2048.

Is this zealotry on the Debian front, or something to update in gnupg?
