I would tell this idea quite natural and I would love if you would do
so. I guess Ubuntu will have reasons to package software for a wider
user base and thus it should be no problem to find a sponsor.
That package will or will not be accepted to Debian, but any other
Debian developer who would like to work on that package, will contact me
and we would cooperate.
Thank you very much for this suggestion.
Same package will enter Ubuntu and it would be safe. There would be no
posibility that same package will apear in Debian without my knowledge.
This way we would have one big "source repository" for both
Go for it
