Thanks for the advice.  I will change the name of the package in the next
upload.  I hope the ftp-master folks won't get mad on me...

I would keep the first version really short.  The only two things that
are important for now is the package naming, the installation directory
for the modules, and maybe the dependency relationships.  The upstream
Makefile for slgdbm installs the module in
/usr/share/slsh/local-packages, but I moved it to /usr/share/slsh.  Do
you think this is correct?  As regards dependency relationships, slgdbm

Suggests: slsh (>= 2.0) | jed (>= 0.99.17) | slrn (>=

I do not know whether this is appropriate or not.
