Finally following up on checking this out.  I'll let you know if i run into
anything (as a ticket on the Sourceforge project.

First off, thanks!

This seems an odd place for the project, as a "piece" of wmlive.  If you are
pursuing it as maintainable, do you plan to break it out into its own place?

This and tpacpi-bat could be filed as "wishlist" severity bugs on
http://www.debian.org/Bugs/ .  There is a pseudo-package WNPP (Work-Needing
and Prospective Packages) as the parent package under which to file for this
kind of thing.  Ref: http://www.debian.org/Bugs/Reporting

Of course, it never hurts to have an official maintainer to sponsor, and i'm
sure ultrabay-scripts would need it's own repo to make it into an official
package :)
Though the "anymore" in reference to official Debian maintainer status tells
me this is probably not news to you.

Again, thanks for the work,
