Anyterm will be packaged any time now(tm).  That is, IMHO, a superior
solution.  In the meantime, I have already packaged ROTE (the library
needed for anyterm) and it is in etch/sid.  Either I or Faidon Liambotis
will have it packaged soon.  We have both expressed an interest (see bug
#311597) and it will be in as soon as he or I get around to it.  In my
case, I will finish classes in about 3 weeks.  If Faidon has not
packaged it by then, I will do it (I still need to transition my server
to Apache2, which is required for anyterm to work).
