Sorry, but just because some people have trouble with
Blackbird:~# apt-cache search memtest
hwtools - Collection of tools for low-level hardware management
kernel-patch-badram - Kernel patch allowing to use partly-bad RAM
memtest86 - A thorough real-mode memory tester.
sysutils - Miscellaneous small system utilities.
Blackbird:~# apt-cache show sysutils | grep memtest
Replaces: bogo, memtest, procinfo
Conflicts: bogo, memtest, procinfo
* memtest - Test system memory for errors (v2.93.1).
is no excuse for packaging this seperately IMNSHO.
Furthermore, libncurses5 is Priority: required, so I don't really buy
your argument about cutting down dependencies either.
Why don't you contact the sysutils maintainer and ask him about
co-maintaining it or something?

<walters> SuSE would need more than LSB tests to look better than
Debian; they'd need divine intervention :) (or a copy of a
woody CD, and a SuSE sticker)
