yup, I've many changes underway, both in upstream and Debian.
I've planned to a deep rewrite of the Debian package, using cdbs to
simplify it and finally rewriting the debconf.
I'll also include the latest change for the shared library
distribution. I intend to reduce the nut footprint (both for pkg,
installed and in memory).

Not sure it will be for 2.2.2, since I'll be a bit in a hurry, but for
2.2.3 otherwise.
