as dblatex3-0.3.12 does not produce anything in

but I assume we need one as current

#!/usr/bin/env python
import sys
import os

package_base = r"/usr/share/dblatex"

from dbtexmf.dblatex import dblatex

Fedora 3.11 seems to have one and Debian has

#! /usr/bin/python3

# Register the Debian error analyser
from dbtexmf.core import error
from dbtexmf.contrib.debian.errorhandler import DebianHandler

from dbtexmf.dblatex import dblatex

that seems a simplified version after removing the
error handler
