Yes, after I wrote I wondered about that. Biber is perl, so it might be
possible to get away with only accessing via the perl bindings. There is
some reference to the shared library in the build-a-binary scripts (using
PAR::Packer), but I don't know if those would be relevant for Debian. On
the otherhand, afaik, option 3 is no more work than option 2, and might
be less work.
