  Hm. For some reason my test suite doesn't catch that case, and
when trying to reproduce manually / fix my automation, I hit the
bug reported by Guillermo. Argh! I'll get back to you as soon as
I can get this working. (Did I mention I hate shared libraries?)

  It makes sense, in a warped and eerie way. I kinda fear for the
salvation of my soul if I think too much about it and it starts
sounding perfectly logical and rational.

  Well, that's a pointer in the easy direction: in the libskarnet
package, you have a link to the skalibs homepage. Sure. But what I
would like is a pointer in the *other* direction: a user is looking
for the Debian package of what she knows as "skalibs". Is there
a list of searchable keywords, or anything of the kind, that
could tell her "the package you're looking for is named libskarnet" ?

  Sorry, I don't understand.
