If, as I've discerned from the discussions going on here, pdfmerge is a
trivial script which does one small thing, it should be alongside other
ps/pdf management scripts such as ps2pdf, pdf2ps, ps2ps, and so on.  There
is no reason to package a single script as a separate package.  When the
debian patch is bigger than the program, you've got problems.
