[debian-knoppix] Include wipe into Knoppix


I would be more then happy, if wipe could be part of Knoppix in the future. 
This should not be a Problem, I think, since wipe is only a tiny package.

cw@neso:~ -> dpkg -s wipe
Package: wipe
Status: install ok installed
Priority: extra
Section: utils
Installed-Size: 124
Maintainer: Thomas Schoepf <schoepf@debian.org>
Version: 0.16-8
Depends: libc6 (>= 2.2.4-4)
Description: Secure file deletion
 Recovery of supposedly erased data from magnetic media is easier than what
 many people would like to believe. A technique called Magnetic Force
 Microscopy (MFM) allows any moderately funded opponent to recover the last
 two or three layers of data written to disk. Wipe repeatedly writes special
 patterns to the files to be destroyed, using the fsync() call and/or the
 O_SYNC bit to force disk access.
