Sorry for the late reply... I've been a bit busy lately.

I have some patches against dpkg 1.10.  I realize that as it stands Adam
will not accept the full patch -- he pointed out parts that he does not
like.  I agree it's a hack. :/

I hope that the work I am doing will provide of some merrit towards dpkg
2.00.  I will port these patches to 1.11 once that is released.

As some of you know, I have a new responsibility now -- my 2 week old
daugher -- and have quite a bit less time to work on this stuff.  I am
plowing through it but not at the rate I would want -- winning the
lottery would be nice :)

Anyway, I have some bug fixes to work through first (glibc & fakeroot
specifically) and after that I hope to resume my goal to document all
the stuff I have changed.
