Bloody hell, what a popualr package that many people want to take :)
David Whitmarsh <email@example.com>, and Kevin Kreamer
<firstname.lastname@example.org> have both expressed interest (both without

I really don;t like informational debconf notes personally, I'd say this
belongs either in README.Debian or the new NEWS.Debian. However, I won't be
maintaining it, so its whoever will be that gets to make that choice :)
