Hmm, so I guess one good approach would be to package
libxml-libxml-xpathcontext-perl and maintain it as long as
libxml-libxml-perl doesn't provide the XPathContext module.
If you think that's a good idea, I can reopen the ITP (that I have
closed) and reupload the package.
By the way, I'd like to see that Perl library in debian for one reason:
backup-manager could recommend libnet-amazon-s3-perli (in the NEW queue
as well) which depends on libxml-libxml-xpathcontext-perl...
The real glory of maintainership isn't making the big and important
decisions. The real glory lies in all the small stuff that doesn't
really matter, and that people will just argue forever.
