Wow, cool. :)
My suggestion with this is that once it seems to work well, you file a
bug on the package with a patch, and outline some of the problems that
CDBS-izing that package will fix. Good examples would be stuff like
DEB_BUILD_OPTIONS=3Dnoopt, or getting rid of deprecated debhelper
commands. Also probably include a pointer to the CDBS docs.
Thanks, and good luck!
