Possible problem: too small for a separate package. Contains ~30 lines 
of real code. Small packages are somewhat unwelcome in Debian, see

Lack of time is my issue (apart from the "too small" concern).
There are a couple of additional plugins, whose packaging for Debian 
has started, but has stalled. See 
http://www.debian.org/devel/wnpp/prospective (search for "libpadre-")

Done for http://padre.perlide.org/trac/wiki/PackagingDebian

(P.S. Please increase the wiki auto-logout timeout. The cookies seem 
OK, but perhaps some other process wipes out authenticated sessions 
too aggressively)
