You left out another important possibility: open the bug as Brian Murray
suggested, then attach the hook to it, and *then* package the
application to include your new hook, and attach the debdiff to the bug

This could be a very good way to practice your own packaging skills :)

Once that is done, you can of course ask gilir (or jmarsden!) to look at
your work, suggest improvements, etc.  gilir can do even more and
actually approve your newly improved package, of course :)
