... which is already in Debian, and apparently hardly maintained.  If
this upstream branch is in fact better suited, and you will have enough
energy to maintain it properly, I think you should try to replace
db2latex (and coordinate with its current maintainers).  Helping
to bring db2latex into a better shape isn't an option for you?
