Yes, I agree completely. I was going to ask something similar yesterday,
but the debian-alpha list had died :-(

This also needs some coordination, to prevent duplications. I'll do exim
first (personal interest :-)

BTW, what are the exact steps needed to do such a package? I guess it
needs to be done as a non-maintainer upload, but what is needed for
that? The debian/changelog needs to be edited, but what / how? And what
then needs to be uploaded? When I last tried to upload my own package
without including the .orig.tar.gz, for example, it got rejected...
