Agreed, and having played around with the module more, I no longer think
it is worth it to package it for Debian. My experience with it has not
been great. It seems to be a set of packages with somewhat arbitrary
divisions, and does not interface with other perl modules nicely.

Assuming no one else thinks it's a good idea to package it, I think this
RFP can be closed. 

Thanks,
Simon
