Here's try number three!

Changes are mostly fixes for woody.  The README.bdist_deb
(included in the patch set) enumerates the changes in more

(I've bitten the bullet and installed woody on one of my
machines, so I'm fairly confident it should work now.)

The patches, on todays CVS are, as always, attached below.

Note to Davide,

Thank you, again, very much for all the testing.

A couple of the lintian warnings
('prerm-does-not-remove-usr-doc-link' and
'postinst-does-not-set-usr-doc-link') that are listed in
your test suite output are due, I think, to your mixed
system.  Specifically, I suspect you've got the woody
version of lintian (which wants to see symlinks from
/usr/doc/<package> to /usr/share/doc/<package>), but a later
version of debhelper.
(Woody's dh_installdocs (in the debhelper package)
automatically generates those links, later versions don't;
/usr/doc has been phased out.)

Anyhow, I'm not going to fix those warnings (unless it turns
out that you're seeing them on your pure woody system.)

On package with python scripts (in /usr/bin) Woody's lintian
generates an 'unusual-interpreter' warning which I think is
spurious (i.e. it is not a valid warning.)  (Lintian 1.20.17
doesn't recognize things like /usr/bin/python2.1 as a valid
interpreter --- it seems valid enough to me.)

Best Regards,
