No need to :-)

Yes we plan further improvements/additions.

Ville: The jpackage_script macro is great and we'll be adding it to the
documentation. You are welcome to add it to [1], since I think you know
most about it so a few lines describing how it works would be best.
We'll be continuing our work on Java guidelines there so feel free to
add things/comment. At least some SIG members are watching the page.

We didn't include it in latest packaging guidelines updates because we
decided to "catch" next-day meeting of FPC to approve what we already
had prepared. And no one really knew about that nice macro :-)
