That's all good, however the man page for ecasound-iam,
which is necessary to use ecasound interactively, is 
in ecatools.  I think it should be moved to ecasound. 

Finally, someone trying out ecasound may be expecting the
docs and ecatools utilities. These packages are relatively
small. Could they be recommended (so they are pulled in
automatically)?  IMO they should be suggested, at least.

Good to know, also about dpkg -L.

Thanks again for what has turned out to be a rather complex
packaging job!
