I made it this way. Seems to work fine.

I was wrong. I thought it will provide many small binaries, but seems
that it is linked in one binary with many features.
So there won't be wasting ram.

Making one deb from these two upstream sources wasn't as simple as
I thought... nevermind. I've just made package with library.
This should first come to Debian's archive, and then I'll provide
packages that depends on it.

I have made this package. Now only checking it with pbuilder
to ensure it builds fine with it.

When this will be done, then I ask for sponsor here... 
I hope that someone upload it for me ;)

Thanks once again for answers.
