I'm a Member of the Pkg-E team. We are currently working on getting
everything needed for e17 into experimental. When we are confident that
the packaging is sane, we will push them into unstable.
My guess is that it will not be in time for the Lenny release.

When doing that, please make sure that the snapshot tarballs do not
include a debian/ directory as this makes the workflow for the Pkg-E
Team more complicated.

We are grouping the modules together if they have similar runtime
dependencies and the size of the individual module is very small.

The different package split will probably make mixing Pkg-E packages and
yours difficult.
