I'm perfectly ok with that, if more then just one package depend on that
lib, it's very important to agree on a stable interface and have that
lib probably team maintained.

Currently python-debianbts fits rng's needs very well -- but I'd gladly
discuss a stable interface and implement that if we can agree on one
(which shouldn't be too hard). I'd be also very glad to push that
project to alioth and include other developers.

Sounds good to me.
