Yes, Debian uses a "virtual" package called "wnpp" (work needing and
prospective packages) to coordinate who is working on which software.

So if you wan't to tell us "Please include this peace of softwaer" the
standard way is to report a bug against this wnpp package, with "RFP"
(request for package) in the subject.
It's explained in detail here: http://www.debian.org/devel/wnpp/#l2
To avoid unnecessary questions, you should mention which programming
language you used, and that the compiler for that language is not free
according to Debians definition of free software.

If you want to package it yourself, read the New Maintainers FAQ at
http://www.debian.org/doc/manuals/maint-guide/index.en.html and ask
further questions on the debian-mentors list

Yours sincerely,
