Okay, well, there's a few things I need to learn:

1) Is XFree86 the place where continuing work on the DPS library is going
to continue to happen?
2) Is the DPS library in dpsclient a separate implementation?  The DPS
library in XFree86 is copyrighted by Adobe, but is under a free license.
3) What is shipped by dpsclient* that is not by my libdps* packages?  I
have attached the contents of these packages below; I don't expect this to
change except for Debian-specific README's and stuff.
4) Is there any documentation on the DPS library API anywhere?  There is so
little information about this library in the XFree86 sources that I'm
having trouble even writing an intelligent package description.
5) I get the feeling that programs written using the dpsclient library will
not be able to be simply recompiled against libdps-dev.  If that is the
case we will need to continue to provide the old dpsclient package during
the transition.
6) Are there any files in my libdps* packages with the same names as files
in your dpsclient* packages?  If so, I need to Replace: your packages as
well.

Thanks for helping me get this figured out.
