I intended to package qvwm, too, but then found out that it is alrady
packaged for debian-jp. The maintainer told me he was trying to become a
"mainstream" developer, too, and maintain it, so I suggest you talk to

(BTW, I have written a menu method for qvwm and sent it to the maintainer,
but I don't know if he has already included it. I can send it to you if
you're interested.)
