Yes.  This seems to be a low hanging fruit regarding Debian integration
and I do not see any reason not to harvest it because finally it saves
you a private BL package and it might serve other users.  I'll do this
probably in the next couple of days (if nobody else is faster ;-))

I remember I spent some time into meme in the past and I also remember
these very issues you are describing here.  I do not remember what might
have been the final blocker but it was nothing that was considered like
a very simple job.  I'll put it on my important list and will see what I
can do.  (I was actually hoping that Soon would come up with a MoM
project but he never answered any ping ...)

Fine for me.  I'm far to distant from a practical use of these packages
that I could raise any educated opinion about this.

Yep - stay healthy, merry Christmas and see you at next years sprint
