There is a difference between telling you that something actually exist
elsewhere already and you wasting our time. The latter only comes in when
the replies of people aren't taken in consideration.

Now, with what your script actually does compared to the existing
ssh-copy-id I don't think it should be added as an own package to Debian.
Instead you should go one of two ways:

 - Get it into the openssh-client package as an example, so users can
  easily get at it if they want to.

 - Or better even: As ssh-copy-id is itself a shell script, enhance that
  and submit a patch (probably to upstream), as that is (as you have
  seen) the one thing that most people know about, so getting that
  better ought to be the best thing.
