I recently manifested a personal policy: I will not kill a fellow
Debian Science supporter - so you are quite safe. ;-)

Well, now I just noticed this and I added 

  Suggests: libqrupdate-dev

to the mathematics-dev tasks.  This entry puts your package onto the
list displayed at

after the next cron job (and I hope I do not regret my policy mentioned
above and you will at least follow THIS link ;-)).  Please confirm that
you agree with me that this package has some relevance for developing
mathematical applications (even if it is not highly relevant because it
is mostly used in connection with Octave and not primarily in self
written applications).  This is what I understood from the description.

Are there any other fields (tasks; see menu on the left of URL above
to get a list) where this package might be relevant.

Thanks for the hint to qrupdate
