I wonder if this would be better in Debian

maybe but the syntax highlighting for code would benefit a bunch of people using kali too. and i know some use it to also colorize their man pages

I like it too. Really useful for code.
Yes, this should be packaged on Debian. Maybe Raphael can help us with this?

We can maintain this in Debian, even though it's not really suited for the pkg-security-team.

Or I can sponsor anyone else willing to introduce it and maintain it in Debian.

As its not 'infosec', best to let Debian handle it.
