librement.sty for standalone latex documents

I am new to latex, and I love the template that was used for creating the Debian Administrators Book

The authors use a latex style librement.sty (in the sources dblatex/librement.sty). Is it possible to use this in a standalone latex doc to create new documents?

Some people have already asked, and it seems that some changes will be needed, but I was wondering how much knowledge I would need of latex to do this (I am novice).

Has anyone already done it and could post the changes needed?

The Git repository:

\$ git clone git://anonscm.debian.org/debian-handbook/debian-handbook.git

• This seems to be a LaTeX2e package, so should be usable with any class. That said, a lot of the code seems to be design-related, so it really should be a class file. – Joseph Wright Aug 14 '12 at 9:05
• Did you actually try to use the package, and if so did you encounter any issues? – Joseph Wright Aug 15 '12 at 7:57
• Sure, tried it but without luck. It seems that there are dependencies with dblatex, but even after putting all styles in a directory there were complaints about possibly using xetex etc. At this stage I have no idea if a normal "article" can be created using this style and compiled with pdflatex. – user17618 Aug 15 '12 at 11:21

\documentclass{report}

if I have a local copy of dblatex and multirow2, giving a single error (Missing number ...) which I can simply bypass. However, I'm suspicious that this is going to work for a real case, not only due to the error but also as the dependencies are odd. For example, why do I have to load ifxetex manually (there is an error if you do not), and what is the difference between multirow2 and the standard multirow pacakge. I would therefore suspect that to use this package you need the appropriate class, etc.
