i was speaking more about the concept of "lumping together different
upstream projects" than the actual name (hence the parenthesized comment)

i think this is to be discussed on this list.
i don't know whether it's good practice, and esp. i don't know whether
its worse practice than creating a debian package for 2 smallish files.

yes this is esactly what i mean by "fully".

the non-working object is mainly "cosmetical" (in a sense that it
directs you to further reading, but does not provide any primary
information). you should be able to get all the information you need
from the help-patch even with a non-functional [pddp/link] object (and
if not, then there is a serious problem with the help-patch, as it means
you have to resort to online documentation)

i would sugggest to use a "Suggests: pd-pddp" at the most.
