There probably are more skilled people, I'm sure that there are more skilled 
people who could package everything that I package.

However that's not the issue, the issue is who is the person who has the best 
combination of skill, time, and interest.  The person with the most time and 
interest will surely make themselves known to the maintainer, so therefore 
the maintainer is the best person to decide who takes over.
