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.

Kind regards
