I use this package, and am interested in adopting it, except
that I note that Colin Walters states that:

[I think he meant 21.3, not 20.3]
I note, however, that we have 21.3 in unstable, and we still
do not seem to have calc in emacs21. Does anyone know what happened?
I note that ftp://ftp.gnu.org/poub/gnu/calc/ still contains calc
2.02f.tar.gz from 1997.

And I am CC'ing that list to see if anyone can shed any light
on this issue.
