Forcing Debian to handle a package indefinitely because someone once upon a
time stuffed it into our hands is also incorrect. It's a problem that the
respective users have to solve for themselves by having one of them pick it
up, not Debian's problem.
In the end, it always comes down to those who do the work, and it's obvious
who's (not) doing work in case of unmaintained packages.
