Volumeicon sits in the system tray and is panel-agnostic, so it provides this functionality for those who don't use one of the major panels.

I'd remove all the extra comments from the top.
You can make that file three lines long :)
Consider switching to DEP5
Consider using DEP3
Why are you including this patch? It looks like if the
system does not support OSS, it won't use it. Is there
a bug with the detection?
Please wrap your lines at 80 on the build-depends, it's
perfectly OK to do that, just bump it in :)
consider using the Vcs-* control fields, they are quite helpful
to people looking at the package, or apt-get source folks.
Also, the PTS picks up on it, which is nice.
The Suggests line is also for applications that work well with this
package, not applications that do similar things. I'd remove that line
( unless of course, volumeicon may use those in some way, in which
case it's OK to keep ).
My internet is quite nasty right now, I'll run the build and lintian
when I have a moment on my netbook later in the day ( if no one else
gets back )
P.S. I recall someone wanting this package in Debian a while back,
thanks for doing it!
