The problem is that I and many others do not pay attention to the
vacation posting unless I *know* that I want to contact that person.
If I come across a new urgent bug, I will not check past postings to
see if the maintainer is on vacation.  However, I don't like having my 
information centralized either, therefore I do not post my vacation

There is not a superb solution to this problem, but the current
solution is probably good enough.
