Quickly reply, before the package reaches a too much wider audience.

This is wrong, sorry, because it will conflict if upstream will release
a 0.1.0 version. I would prefer something similar to the
linux-2.6-openmoko package and indeed the Debian Git repository has an
upstream tag, 20090302.git451398a2:

OK, based on the corresponding commit
the Debian package version should be 20090503.gitb5eb5f79-1.

This is exactly what I tried from the Debian Git repository above and
then I ended up with a compilation error. I did not investigated
further because of lack of time, sorry.

Sure, do you want to co-maintain the package?

I would remove them ASAP, simply because the version problem is a
serious one IMHO.
