So far, so well.  But I'd really also like to read an answer to the
question whether it is, or can be made a drop-in replacement for
db2latex, and whether you've talked with db2latex's Debian maintainers
(apparently a different mailing list with a similar name).  And by the
way, upstream of db2latex in fact is active, they've helped in fixing a
RC of db2latex - unfortunately it still has one, without any maintainer
reaction since September 05.
