The xorn executable is not too well suited to be in libgeda47 because
its name does not change with SONAME which would make library
transitions difficult. So perhaps put xorn live in geda-utils then?
The xorn executable is called internally, so packaging it in geda-utils
would mean the other packages would have to depend on this package.
Since geda-utils contains rarely-used programs that usually aren't
installed at all, I'd like to avoid this. The xorn binary itself is a
script, so it could be packaged in libgeda-common, though.
Another option would be to package the xorn binary separately; but
gEDA/gaf is already fragmented into many packages, and I'd like to avoid
introducing yet another one.
Leaving things as-is shouldn't be a problem, either, since libgeda is an
internal library used by gEDA/gaf, and when it's replaced by a new
version, all binary packages are replaced at the same time.
