Sounds good. I'm at the tail end of unpacking in my new place, so
right this moment, I'm doing only major Debian work. In a week or two
when I get back to "normal", I'll have a closer look at this and do a
new upload resolving any bugs I can take care of right away and
adopting the package at the same time.

The thought crossed my mind as well. At the moment, I wouldn't be
inclined to do more than prepare patches to send upstream, but we'll
see. I have a few unrelated packages (though one is PDF related) that
I'm trying to get ready for release, so that will take most of my
discretionary development time. (I have a PDF library and some useful
tools I wrote as part of my job that my former employer graciously
allowed me to release as an open source project. Details
