Thank you very much for the sponsoring offer, it would be very 
appreciated. There is a new upstream version (using dh-autoreconf) 
pending. At this stage it's basically ready, but needs a little more 
attention to migrating existing configurations (and a few documentation
changes) before it can be uploaded. 

Ideally I can get the new version into shape until the end of the 
weekend, but feel free to push a porter-NMU as needed. The patch 
attached to this bug should work and there's no need to bother about 
the pending new version (it's fixed there already in an equivalent way)
or a formal NMU-diff. I'll take care to acknowledge the NMU and not to 
conflict with the testing migration then.
