:-( I'll eagerly wait.

And there'll never be, I guess ;-)

It's used only internally; once I'll have a working sid box again, I'll
re-build the package moving the lib to /usr/lib/gtkpod. Thanks for the hint.

Yes, but no reply at present time. I asked them for info concerning who
should be the maintainer (me?) and the uploader (now the Frank orphaned
the package) to modify debian/control file accordingly. Never thought
the split of the library could be an issue; it has been suggested by the
guys in #debian-mentors to resolv a lintian warning.
Once they'll knock on my door, I'll ask them even about this.
Thank you for the advice.
