Please go for it!

I'd need this package very much.  I considered it to package it
myself and tried to contact the author but he didn't answer to my
e-mail since 1 month :-(.  Did you told him your plan?

Unfortunately I can't help you packaging it because I didn't start
working on it but I hope very much that you get the package soon.

I hope that FreeTDS 0.51 will come soon which provides an ODBC driver
to MSSQL server and will hopefully work with gnome-db.

Kind regard
