I think that we should develop this library, and release it to the
public just like any other upstream package.  We should (if possible)
write it as a distribution independent solution to the problem and
then package it for Debian.  Finally name it something other than
libdebian, and we'd probably have a good chance of getting others to
start using it in their upstream sources for all platforms.
