Thanks for your work for getting backports into Etch.

Well, don't bother with the SELinux packages; most of them are
already in Incoming, though I am not packaging straight out of SVN yet.
I'm sticking to the released versions, until I can see a clear need to
go to SVN HEAD ...

Hmm. My packaging does not care, really, what the python
versions available are; and so on my machine at the moment it provides
both 2.4 and 2.5 bindings (using python-support). What changes did you
think needed to be made in the packaging?

Yes, I am still pondering how many packages I need to split this
into. There are 5 shared libraries, with different so names and
releases (so could be 2 packages per library -- 10 packages), then
there are python bindings (can be just one package), there are java
bindings (another package), and then there are the tools tehmselves,
adding up to 13 packages.

Well, that makes the packaging effort a non-starter for me; I
don't want to have to switch into CDBS.

Could you expand on this, please?
