That's fine and I know tzhat you are a very active Debian Science member
(BTW, thanks for your great effort into gnuplot!). However, I'm just
wondering whether we could create a new task where this package and
potentially others might fit into. For the moment I have no good idea.
We might think either in the diraction of "Modelling" or "Simulation"
or even in terms of "Traffic research" (but in the later category I do
not see other targets inside Debian).
