And if Michael Tokarev is who I tihnk he is, he has been very much
encouraged on #debian-devel to pursue maintainership of kvm.
I'm not personally a user of kvm (yet?), but I do feel perfectly safe
with Michael as kvm maintainer. I even think it will be a very big
improvement. If just half the clue he shows in #debian-devel is 'not
faking', I will be very pleased to see a increased involvement of
Michael in Debian.
