Hmm, I think it sounds like a useful package. I was thinking about
using it on workstations with NFS homes to keep core dumps of several
GB away from NFS mounted directories.

I also thought about adding it as "Suggests" to my upcoming
unburden-home-dir package: http://bugs.debian.org/602045

That sounds like a reason not packaging it under the OVS packaging
team, but not like a reason for not having it in Debian. :-)

No idea about OVS. I regarded it as standalone package. I only noticed
the OVS team as maintainer, so I knew it was relatedto alle the OVS
packages which were in the new packages list that day, too. :-)
