We already have package/pigpio/ and a bunch of other GPIO-related
packages.We even have two python modules dedicated to the GPIO on the
rpi: package/python-pigpio/ (a python binding to pigpio), and
package/python-rpi-gpio/.

Why can't the rpi folks just use the generic interfaces provided by the
kernel, of even by the generic libgpiod?

So, what does that package brings that the existing ones do not?

Why staging? As far as I can see, it just installs a single executable,
and no library.
