Of course, I don't have a "preferred" package: I simply think that you
can join the effort to create The python interface for Debian BTS. You
know better than anyone else the strengths and faults for your
interfaces so maybe you will find the way to "extract" the best of
both and come out with a single package, maybe maintained by you both
