That is certainly not all that matters. If every script anyone tried to
write was included in Debian, Debian would collapse under its own
weight. I find it hard to believe any 340 line script would merit its
own package. I think it would be much more worthwhile to try to get it
added to an existing package, such as one of the command-line players.
