Hi Adam,

thanks for your fast feedback.
To be honest, this was the easiest way for me to get rid of some confusing warnings / errors of the build tools. But your arguments sounds reasonable and I tried to re-build the package as quilt.

New upload is done.

I look forward to further feedback from you.

May I ask why did you convert the package to native?
* the upstream package is useful outside Debian
* the upstream package _exists_ (ie, doesn't come from Debian)
* the packaging hasn't been fully adapted to native

Generally, only stuff like debhelper makes sense as native, even if you're upstream -- clear separation between upstream and packaging parts allows
other people to make non-maintainer uploads that can be reasonably
incorporated into your master repository.

(I haven't looked at other changes yet.)
