I used "deb-make" from the "debmake" package to create it.  Everything went
fairly smoothly and the result seemed OK.

Can some expert please clarify which is officially the best way of
Debianizing a package?

In the case of something like zcav deb-make seems best because it's quick and
easy, I don't want to spend more time Debianizing it than I spent writing it!

Electronic information tampers with your soul.
