Really? So, they are already first-class deb packages? According to the your
first message in the whole thread, the answer is "no". I just re-read (for
sure) the Joerg's mail back in this subthread, and my answer is still "no". I
re-read some random mails and saw '.ddeb' here and there. And, what's then
second (yours) and third (Roger's) letters ago directly in this thread speak
about? You has put far more bigger and constructive answer (yet unsatisfiable)
to Roger points, and my points is basically subset of them, re-explained from
package manager PoV.

You also told that '...dpkg nor apt, aptitude, apt-get and company... just
work perfectly fine'. What percent of their (and other tools') functionality
did you test to say that?
