I have not yet had time to check the package, but I use it regularly and
it would be a quite welcome addition to the archive.

I have one comment, though: with this "abbreviated" short description,
people might miss the package. It would be better to say a little more
about it in the short description.

I did not check the long description also, but I would suggest fleshing
it out a little bit, if it is similar to what Christian Marillat has in
his repository.

No offense to him, as he maintains a huge amount of packages and they
are not meant to be in the archive---IOW, people using his repository
should know what they are doing by using a non-distribution source of

OTOH, for packages targeted at main, it would be a good thing to have
them described in a little bit more detail.

Anyway, thank you for stepping up and bringing this very nice utility to
