The likelihood of Debian having a package that actually provides matlab
seems to be rather low. If it ever happens this package would be
obsolete and could be removed.

I assume you want to point to the problem of some people having matlab
packages that actually contain the binaries, right? How does Debian deal
with this issue? Could we have a 'skype' package?

What name do you suggest? Maybe 'matlab-package'?
