How different are dfu-util and dfu-programmer?

Dear Harald!

I started to work on a Debian package for dfu-util today, but stubled 
over this comment in the source code:

  * dfu-util
  * (C) 2007 by OpenMoko, Inc.
  * Written by Harald Welte <laforge at>
  * Based on existing code of dfu-programmer-0.4

I guess dfu-programmer is

Could you briefly explain what the major differences / incompatible 
changes are which you made to dfu-programmer to create dfu-util? Would 
it be possible to re-unite dfu-programmer and dfu-utils?

The Debian folks will ask why dfu-util should exist next to 
dfu-programmer (wich is in unstabled and testing already).
