I saw that ITP
but it had a link to a URL that wasn't working.  I also did the
packaging since I wanted to practice/play with using CDBS (which is very
good). I wasn't trying to step on your toes.

At some point, yes, these might be official but it depends when
the API is stable enough such that the public API won't change, and
the shared library rules start to apply (sonames, version numbers).

I'm not a Debian Developer (DD), haven't applied yet, but do maintain a
couple of packages in debian at the moment.
