I could help you out with this (improving the packaging, and eventually
sponsor an upload to debian). However this would require an upload of
a new package (since it is songwrite2 now), and since we are already in
freeze it might be too late to get this into wheezy. We will see what
the release team says.
Where did you get songwrite2_0.4.2-1.tar.gz upstream tar ball ? I looked
at http://download.gna.org/songwrite/ but the most recent I could find there
PS : you are not by any chance coming to debconf12 in Managua, are you ?
