Comments:       This is a really awesome application that does many
                useful things that I think the DSL community will 
                benefit from.
                It requires the xxxx.dsl and the yyyy.dsl to function.
                This was repackaged from the my_program_42.0-0_i386.deb file
                found at stable. Includes icon and menu.
