Would be great if this will go into the "official" package.

In Debian /usr/local is complety empty. There should the Admin/User
install packages not direct from the Distribution.
FreeBSD installs enverything to /usr/local what doesn't belong to the
base system.
I installed the models to /usr/share/gdis/models/

No I dont have a manpage.
The debian policy says "Each program, utility, and function should have
an associated manpage included in the same package."
There is no must but if there will be a small manpage with
a description what the program do, that would be great.
