Although I should add that creating REAL packages for Debian is one of the
more time consuming of all package creations... Not so much the dependency
information but changing practically every mention of Linux into GNU/Linux
while slavering away like Pavlov's dog in a clock store at high noon and
putting all the bits of program into where Debian wants them...
I admit if you _do_ do that you create a very high level of consistency but
Jeebus, I ain't that picky about things, even for a Linux-elitist, and
certainly not for software I don't intend to maintain a package for.
