[PROPOSAL] virtual package 'lha' -- a suitable /usr/bin/lha

Dear folks,

LZH is an archive format which is generated by the lha utility (1).
This format is still popular in Japan, but the lha utility is not a free
software. However, some free softwares which use LZH as their
data format (2) and some free GUI archive file managers (3)
often use fork+exec, popen, or system, to call the
command line program '/usr/bin/lha' to extract the data.

Therefore I propose a virtual package named 'lha' for those packages who can
provide the functionality of '/usr/bin/lha'.

(1) "lha" package in Debian non-free section
(2) "fkiss", "gnomekiss" in Debian
(3) "ark", "file-roller", "krusader" in Debian
