Yup, but these are unstable-only changes.

In my unofficial package pool I don't support stable, only the current
Debian unstable aka 'sid'. If users want it for stable, they have to
build their own package.

Not a strict one, but new packages should have the newest standard.

Perhaps I will put it into unstable, but only after some
testing. I ripped the traffic shaping scripts from fiaif half a year
ago for my own firewall. Now I noticed that there is a debian/
subdir and wanted to give it a try. In 2-3 weeks I will know what to
do ;)

Cheers, Bastian
