Good for you!  ;)

Well, if, as I claim, installing sgml-tools v2 is so easy on debian,
then wouldn't it be easier/better to just provide the package?  Then
no need to write that document.

I've emailed the current Debian maintainer (please continue CC the
debian maintainer at <sgml-tools@packages.debian.org>), asking what I
can do to help get sgml-tools v2 into potato, including doing an NMU
for him.

One issue which I am uncertain about is whether we should just take
the sgml-tools v1 package and *replace* it with a v2-based one, or
whether we should provide *both* sgml-tools v1 and sgml-tools v2
(maybe a new pkg named sgml-tools-2).

Thoughts from this list?

We'll try to remember.
