feel free to make your own apt-gettable repository for project gutenberg

personally, i think that a script which regularly downloaded the index
of available texts, providing a searchable database, and capable of
automatically fetching any one or more of them for you would be more

and it would be useful to non debian users too. think of it as the apt
equivalent for project gutenberg :)
