The version of Sage in Debian/Ubuntu is hopelessly outdated and right
now no one is working on getting new packages prepared. SageTeX will be
included in the next Sage released, and we can switch links and so on to
the Sage documentation.

That's roughly what I've done in the current documentation. When you say
"add a texmf tree", do you mean add an entire new tree that tools like
kpsewhich look through, in addition to texmkf-local, ~/texmf, and so on? 

Oh, and as far as MikTeX goes: Sage doesn't currently work on Windows,
so I've been ignoring it. Getting Sage ported to Windows will be much,
much more difficult than getting SageTeX added into MikTeX.
