Uhm ... what about shipping a separate library libdebtags? It seems to
me a good way to share the C code you mention in a previous mail and
also a good way to avoid future incompatibility if you decide to change
the format of the "package-tags".

Since the tools are really young, this seems a good moment for "good
design" (TM) things.

Cheers and thanks for your wonderful work!
