I think it would be better to use same description style for
libmk4-2-dbg, e.g. "MetaKit embeddable database -- debug symbols"

Do you intend to maintain this library in Debian if/after this fix for
akregator is uploaded?

This is a worrying thing. They did the last release on June 2007. They
consider it stable despite (presumably) long-known crash bug. Looks like
an abandonware. Do they have any bugzilla? Will they fix (other) severe
