RFC/RFS for proposed Balsa 2 NMU

Hi everyone,
	Jules Bean <jules@debian>, the current maintainer of Balsa has
given me permission for me to NMU and repackage Balsa 2.0.x to replace
his Balsa 1.2 (1.4 was never uploaded) packages in Debian.
	However, since I am still a new maintainer [1], I am
technically barred [2] (and prevented) from carrying out this NMU
myself. Since Balsa has now been rewritten for GNOME 2, debian/* also
needed a major overhaul.

[2] http://www.debian.org/doc/developers-reference/ch-pkgs.en.html#s-nmu-who

	So if you have some spare time, please review my repackaging
of Balsa and if it's good enough, sponsor it as well.

Thanks in advanced,
Andrew "Netsnipe" Lau
