[RFS]: jsMath:TeX equations in HTML documents

Dear All,

For the sake of reference I am replying to my ITP bugreport.

Please consider next packages for sponsoring or for commenting on.
(I am 1 person away from DAM approval in NM queue... 1,2 months
more and I might become a DD myself ;-) For now I need sponsoring)

dget http://itanix.rutgers.edu/rumba/dists/sid/perspect/source/web/jsmath_3.3g-1.dsc 
dget http://itanix.rutgers.edu/rumba/dists/sid/perspect/source/web/jsmath-fonts_1.3-1.dsc
dget http://itanix.rutgers.edu/rumba/dists/sid/perspect/source/web/jsmath-fonts-sprite_1.0-1.dsc

Binaries available from my repository:
 deb http://itanix.rutgers.edu/rumba/ sid perspect

This is the 1st packaging, thus it would close an ITP.

Packages are lintian/linda clean. Worries might be due to use of
debconf in jsmath to configure web servers. gallery's scripts were used
as a start point. I might in future disable botton in jsMath menu to
look for updates (although it can't hurt so people could buzz me to run
uscan ;-))

Thanks everyone in advance for looking at.
