That's very tempting but I'm very happy to let you handle it. My vim-foo
is just too weak, alas...

Please update the maintainer field to whatever works for you/Bram. :) I
didn't realise the field was more than "just" text.

We support that in debcontrol.vim? Nice. Again, my vim-foo (or eyesight)
didn't notice that. Again, please feel absolutely free to update and
improve, etc.

Best wishes,
