Ok, thanks.  Just too bad I didn't get a response back then.  Anyway,
it's good to see this kind of dpkg development.  At the time, the
sorry state of dpkg -- the entry point of Debian for curious
non-debian users like me -- and the fact that Debian didn't seem to be
able to respond to patches in any way, made me turn away again for
another year.

However, I switched to Debian/powerpc a few months ago, and aside from
the warm fuzzy feeling it gives me, I can't imagine ever going back to
the horrors of browsing the internet for the latest (possibly wrongly
packaged) RPMs, esp. for an in-flux platform like powerpc.
