That's salomonic.  I hope people notice that.  Splitting it at arbitrary
language boundaries instead of sharing a common repository and getting their
act together...  and to arrange for two languages in use... would make little
baby Jesus cry.  Especially as you admit that it's temporary until someone
comes along with Python knowledge and happens to maintain devscripts.

Isn't debian-goodies similar?  Do we need a -python and -perl there, too?
There's no technical reason for it.

Kind regards
