Is it going to be a transition to util-linux-2.6?  It would be nice if
it was because of significantly less amount of patching needed (a lot of
RedHat's patches are incorporated in 2.6), a number of bugfixes, easier
upstream notification etc.  If I were a Debian maintainer, I'd take
this work.  Well, I can take it anyway and send the diff, if nobody
objects.  I could also apply for maintainership (I have tkmixer packaged
and I can probably take some orphans) if the `new-maintainer' address
worked (I haven't been kicking it for more than a month, though).
