In principle I like modularisation - even more if done properly with
static *and* dynamic library. However, as yesterday said to Michael for
libgff - only if the dynamic library does not consume to much time ...
In the later case I'm a fan of d-shlibs to install the files.

I now see what you mean. For me that is fine. It might happen that I
might disturb pq when refreshing a quilt patch. Hopefully pq will be
able to deal with this. Otherwise its fine for me.

As said above: I consider it worth if not to time consuming to implement.

Thanks for working on this. BTW, I see a popcon of zero for kmc. Are
all kmc users (and also non-kmc users ;-)) sure they have
sudo dpkg-reconfigure popularity-contest
set to "yes"? It would help to give us some data in what package to
spent more or less time.
