And in general, I welcome the effort to combine the efforts spent in
the two packages. They are both valuable, and IMO both suffer a bit
from unintuitive names and partly overlapping tools, while both
provide a great help for developers.

(And since both operate on .deb packages I see no real value in
separating them between Debian and Ubuntu.)
