I was indeed too cryptic, sorry, let me explain.

I don't want to see a bzr-foo package in the archive for each .py module
available on the internet which provides yet another sub-command for
bzr. I asked under the (wrong) assumption that bzrtools was a Debian
package shipping in a single Debian package several bzr addons. Under
that assumption it seemed reasonable to avoid creating a new package,
bug including your new addons as part of it.

Since my assumption was wrong: what about creating a "bzr-addons" Debian
package containing the most used bzr addons out there instead of filing
an ITP for just one?
