That's great Roman!  I have also been working on packaging, with the  
aim of getting things into Debian.  Then they'll go into Ubuntu too.   
We should try to get a Debian Developer to sponsor the gmerlin stuff  
so that it gets included.  Its used by Gem too.

FYI, here are the libdirs that I have packaged and built using  
launchpad.  Also, you can easily make builds for old distros with  
launchpad as well, like Jaunty, etc.
