I'm not a DD, but I checked it out anyway.

Looks like it's mostly in order. I'm not good with libraries, so I
can't give a "full" review,
but it looks pretty darn clean. DEP5 and DEP3 are being used, quilt is
nice, no lintian
errors up to P, E, and I.

I'm having a tough time picking anything out. Perhaps someone with more library
experience then myself could review it.

Well done, keep up the great work!

P.S. I use discount on a daily basis, thanks for maintaining this!
