Debian and dpkg

Well, since Ian latest news has rocked us all.  I'm making it know
that I've been working on a re-write of dpkg.  Also, the packaging
guidelines and such I'd like to have control over.  Why?  The
current packages I have seen don't support of few features too well.

Such as:
package updating.
distribution evolution [new packages, new categories, etc].
There is little to no initialization or customization features
	for packages or dpkg itself.
Backup package

These are just a few that come to mind right now.  Any comments or
objections?  [Plus, a copy of the packaging guidelines would be
nice too :)]
