As you are neither a programmer in the relevant language, a user of the 
software, or a Debian developer, are you certain you wish to package this 
software?

Not being a DD is a fairly minor detail - I have filed ITPs myself without 
being a developer - but I believe it is generally a good idea to use software 
-before- packaging it...  Unusable packages do far more harm than good, and I 
can see how this could easily become such a case.  

Just a suggestion...
