I do not want to step over anybody's toes here. If Ove still wants to
maintain this package, he should, but it looks like he's overwhelmed and
doesn't have time to do it.

I do not have much time either, but I can sponsor uploads, that seems
easy enough.

Plus, I think that the stuff from Ubuntu is great - we should look into
that first. They have 1.2 and 1.3 all rolled up and ready to go.

Can you review their work? I can do some communications with them people
if needs be.
