This is more policy than anything else...  I don't know if there's any
technical reason why you can't have single-character package names.

Either way, cl-debian should be Debian-policy conforming and reject
them; the patch to parsehelp.c could be accepted though.

btw. your patches are backwards.

Have you ever, ever felt like this?
Had strange things happen?  Are you going round the twist?
