So it looks like he's probably still recovering his system....

That would be great.  I really need it here too.  I even sent an e-mail
message to Emanuele Pucciarelli (who's listed as the previous maintainer)
saying I'd be willing to take it over.  Of course, I'd rather not do
that, since it's a pretty large package, and would take quite a bit
of effort.

PostgreSQL 6.1 should be coming out in a few days.  It looks good.  :-)
