Plugins for non-free software in orig.tar.gz


(Please CC me in the replies, I'm not subscribed to the ML).

I packaged Aqsis recently: http://packages.debian.org/source/unstable/aqsis

and it contains a kind of plugin, adaptor or something like that for a 
software called Houdini [1], which is "a high-end 3D animation package 
developed by Side Effects Software which headquartered in Toronto, Canada. 
Its chief distinction from other packages is that it has been designed as a 
purely procedural environment. A version of the product, called Houdini 
Apprentice, is available as a free download for non-commercial use".

This kind of plugin is intended enable Houdini using Aqsis renderer.

I can disable it and not build it/install it in binary packace, this plugin 
isn't very important at the moment (e.g. it's not important enough to create 
a binary package for contrib/); but I don't know whether we can have it in 
the original source package, or it has to be removed altogether from 

Also, I don't know if in the latter case, I should name the orig.tar.gz or
the package in some other way (like appending 'dfsg' or so).  The closest
documentation that I got so far is this one:


Any hints?
