If you feel that these tools should be easy to install and use by
everyone from the standard Debian/Ubuntu archives, and volunteer for
the needed work, the package will most probably find a sponsor,
assuming trivial conditions like a compliant license of course.

Maintaining a package is quite different a task than being the
upstream author. For example, maintaining a package like aflex is way
much less work than maintaining a shared library with a comparable
code source.  Please take a quick look at
