what happens in case of a namespace conflict with Debian? Given that apps are
not only in dpkg's namespace of all installed applications, as they also refer
to paths within /usr. Can a package in Ubuntu be updated through this process?
Will a package that appears in Ubuntu proper supersede the application
submitted through this process? Will the version for use by apt and dpkg be
prefixed, so that it does not collide? (I see todo items referencing a version
numbering scheme, but I don't see it spelled out at first glance.)

Kind regards
