Improving the packaging is an activity that needs to be undertaken with
the actual maintainers, which you are not (Chris is the relevant
maintainer here). If you read your beloved Policy carefully, you'll

the full co-operation of maintainers to do anything.

Have you even talked to Chris privately about this?

<CarpeDiem> but tell me...I have an app for tk ? where should i run it?
<wlfshmn> CarpeDiem: in a contained environment. on a non-networked box.
