I see. 

As Stefano pointed out, I wasnt questioning the usefulness of this package - 
also because I didnt get what it is/does.

And, I disagree that '"_something_ as a service" is an understood term these 
days.' - to me it's mostly a marketing term which no clear meaning and I 
probably know more about this than the average Debian user...

To rephrase: please provide some more useful information what the package 
actually is good for in the long description.
