Though you could try the following set of criteria:

1. Are there already similar packages in Debian? NO - okay, add.

2. Does it offer significant *technical* advantages over those packages?
   YES - okay, add.

3. Are any of those other similar packages poorly maintained? YES -
   don't add another until the others are cleaned up or removed - so
   don't add

4. Hairsplitting time - is there likelihood that adding it will cause
   grave distress to some proportion of the target market? NO - don't

Default: then add it.

Since there are a *lot* of CPU monitors, and a finite number of
developers, and I'm sure at least one CPU monitor needs more
maintenance, and wmbubblemon does the same job better, why add another?

cheers, Rich.
