Well, it's still too new to be incorporated in dpkg. And, most likely, the
script itself will undergo several revisions before becoming stable. Which
means several uploads.
Dpkg is a base package, and with the current state of woody, not to be
uploaded unless dire circumstances happen.
Make this script a separate package, and when it is done, it can be moved
elsewhere(post woody release).
