It looks good to me. The only thing I'm not sure about is "fdm" in the name;
in scientific articles, I've learned to use "fff" (fused filament fabrication),
because "fdm" is trademarked AFAIK. But it's certainly legal to use it in this
way, and since they've put it in the name, I would just keep it.

Yes, that sounds useful.

Agreed. First priority is to get Cura into Debian.
