Minor correcton -- rpvm does indeed use libpvm3, but the dispute is over
libgpvm3, not libpvm3. (libgpvm3 is a set of rarely-used group functions, a
supplement to libpvm3. libpvm3 has had shared libraries in Debian for a long
time, but this is a Debianism; if I had packaged the package myself from
scratch today, I'd probably rather make a libpvm3_pic package.)

The rest of the mail looks reasonable to me.
