I see. The WNPP bug is a good place to record such information, not only so
that interested parties can find out the status of the package, but so that
someone else can help with issues like this. When an ITP has no messages
for almost a year, it tends to look forgotten.

Perhaps it should be retitled to an RFP, or else a separate RFP should be
filed for this alternate xplot if there isn't one already?
