Wait, the synopsis of the package description? Where's that? I
thought we were just reviewing the man page.

With the nonnativisms filtered out this would make a good basis for a
Debian package description, but let's transplant in that material
about not depending on KDE. Something like:
Description: logic game based on KSokoban
pyKsoko is a clone of the puzzle game sokoban, using a default skin
taken from the KSokoban shipped with KDE 3.5.x (but not depending on
KDE). The game also has a "modern" skin, and over 5000 levels.
Background music for the game can be downloaded from its homepage.
You play a warehouse keeper ("sokoban" in Japanese) trying to push
crates to their proper locations in a warehouse without letting them
get into dead ends or block movement; crates cannot be pulled or
(Pedantic footnote: in fact the Japanese for warehouse keeper is
"sōkoban", but never mind the macron.)

sysadmin, and probably no clue about this particular package
