Description : Open Trace Format (OTF) support library
OTF is a standard trace format used by several high-performance tools,
using an ASCII encoding, which supports multiple streams. The libotf
provides support for reading/writing them.
libotf is actually already used by openmpi, could be used by vite, and
by the prospective eztrace package (ITP #658116).
There is already a libotf in debian, for handling OpenType Font. What
I intend to do is renaming the so to allow co-installation, but
keep development file names as is and use a conflict between -dev
packages. Does it sound OK?
