No, interest hasn't fallen off.  I've just been busy with the Great Perl
Upgrade and getting Lintian complaint and the many votes we've been having.
I really want to see such a port.  I had posted a few questions on

waiting for a few more people to be interested.

Please cc all mailing list replies to me, also.
