Looking for ideas for merging a micro package... (was: Nitpicking in the NEW queue.)

My new pagemap package have recently been rejected being a small package.
Indeed, it is a small script, wrote in ruby, that use /proc/<PID>/pagemap
binary files (and a few other from /sys) and display in text the
mapping between physical and virtual memory.
When working on NUMA system, it can sometimes be a useful tool
to analyze the performances of HPC programs.
Never mind. My current problem is that I have no idea which current
package to contact to ask for a inclusion. It is not important enough
to be included in packages such as util-linux and few (no?) system/devel
packages already have a dependency on ruby (ie adding the pagemap script
would add a dependency on ruby).
