It certainly would be great, if it could make into Debian. However, that
seems to be a trickier thing to do than what I did yesterday (readanysf
also has only one author) and most likely it requires more expertise to
get everything right. 
I would be glad to be of any help here, though I think I rather start
with proper packages in Launchpad, since that seems more realistic and I
also wouldn't want to step on someones toes, who already started working
on it. The first goal would be to have working and up-to-date packages
of gmerlin-avdecoder and readanysf~ in launchpad. This hopefully would
already ease the installation of it a lot.

Very nice!
