Yup, I do agree with that, I prefer to store just the debian directory
in the versioning system, and use quilt if I need to patch the code
for whatever reason (which hasn't been neccesary in the case of the
SDL bindings), as it makes everything easier.

OK then, I trust you, I'll give darcs a try :)

That would be great, if you could. I still have to replace
"Maintainer" in debian/control by the team's email, and add myself to
"Uploaders". Feel free to add you too to "Uploaders" and add the
"DM-Upload-Allowed: yes" tag, if that's OK with the Team's policies.
Greetings and thanks,
