BTW (just because we are adding links) is a good idea to add links to
examples regarding packaging stuff that depends on some particular
I'm thinking about reporting at least the name of:
- one Perl package that fits well with the perl policy
- one Python package that fits well with the python policy (or the
  upcoming one because I'm not sure it have been officially released)
- one OCaml package that fits well with the upcoming OCaml python policy

Regarding the last one I can say that the draft version of the policy
can be found in /usr/share/doc/ocaml/ocaml_packaging_policy.gz and that
a good example are packages libzip-ocaml{,-dev}.
