Sorry for the delay, I was AFK until just now.

I've prepared a quick upload consisting of only Matthias' patch, minus
the superfluous d/shlibs.local as discussed in Michael's follow-up to
the patch.

I do still need a sponsor, though. For whomever is willing to act as

or, alternatively, via the git repo


using gbp.

Please let me know if there is anything else I can do.
