Nice, I have been accustomed to use dh_make and the various config files it produces, and dh_make, when used properly, more or less does all the things required for a decent deb-package => save time:-)

No problems policy or legal-wise; you just have to consider how
supportable the software is. If it gets into the next Debian release
has a security flaw discovered in it, can you help fix the bug?

This type of software does not give me any head-egg because developing and researching in this particular area is what I do for a living:-)

To answer your question 5, if you think other users might find the
software useful then go for it! :)

I think I will have a go for it. I already have made a ITP/RFS for a front-end to this application in GTK2 which I have done myself.
