only after screen-profiles got accepted

Can you please file wishlist bugs with the patches included in debian
please? Since it seem that you have created them, you are in a much
better position to answer potential questions about them.

Looking at these issues, it seems to be that without them,
screen-profiles wouldn't be that useful in debian. In that case, does it
make sense at all to upload it to debian?

I've pushed my branch neverthless to
lp:~siretart/screen-profiles/debian, but I need to do some more
functional tests in my VM before I can upload it.
