I just had a look at what the other kids are doing:

dpkg: package maintenance system for Debian
dpkg-dev: package building tools for Debian
apt: Advanced front-end for dpkg
     This is Debian's next generation front-end for the dpkg package
     manager. [...]
devscripts: scripts to make the life of a Debian Package maintainer
dh-make: tool that converts source archives into Debian package source
dh-make-perl: Create Debian packages from perl modules

I'd rather leave that as it is. The package won't be as useful for the
less free operating systems based on Debian anyhow.
