I've been thinking about this as well the last couple of days. I've just
about taken over maintenance of isdnutils, and the current version is
based on libc6. However, a couple of the fixes should ideally also be
available for bo. Building two different versions is not a problem, as I
have hamm on a separate disk (so I can boot either bo or hamm).
However, the version number needs to be distinct.

So, any ideas? Be gentle, I'm only just beginning to understand the way
dpkg-buildpackage et.al. work :-)
