  Description     : Simple animals guessing game

This is a trivial guessing game, intended for small children. You can think 
of an animal and the computer will try to guess which animal you were 
thinking of. The longer you play, the more animals are known to the 

The main feature is the support of different languages, since children 
won't be able to read and write English text. These are the languages 
currently supported: English and German.

So much for the long description, here are a few explanations why I want to 
include it in Debian:

The main reason why I wrote this little script is that there is a game 
called "animals" in Debian, which has RC bugs and isn't cared for. 
Moreover, it is a relatively large (considering the purpose) C-Project, and 
this script consists of some lines of perl code. The virtual package 
"junior-games-text" is still depending on animals. It could now replace 
that dependancy with this package.

Last but not least, this program is prepared for i18n - a crucial feature 
for the intended audience, IMHO.
