Since not everyone subscribes to d-d, is there a n easy way to do this?
Would a change in a library that is officially depended on by more than
X packages qualify to be sent out via d-d-a?  Or does there is exist
some alias that a library maintainer could a mail to?  For example, if I
maintain a library with a source package name of foo and I could send a
message to foo-dependents@qa.debian.org and the system could figure
out, based on the maintainer info kept for each package, a list of email
addresses, that would be very nice.  That way, by sending one message,
the maintainers of all dependent packages ar notified.  This would be
especially good for packages which have many dependents.

Just my $.02.
