 IMHO this script/package is very usefull for people working with/on Debian
on platforms different that intel (build daemons are sometimes lagged). It's
very tedious task to lookup if there is newer  version of Debian package
available in sources. 
 At least i find it very usefull (well right now i'm judging only on the
basis of this mail <<i'm trying to download at the very moment>>)
