  I took the liberty to make an individual package of it.  I did get
the version Peter mentioned, added a 50dpkg-dev-emacs.el and a trivial
Makefile, dh_make and voila.  People interested can point their apts
to the following locations and apt-get install dpkg-dev-emacs.

deb http://roland.mas.free.fr/debian/ unstable main
deb-src http://roland.mas.free.fr/debian/ unstable main

  As a prospective new maintainer, I'd be interested in feedback.  And
if Peter or someone wants to adopt the package afterwards, then feel
free to.
