Bug#212988: Are you still packaging this?

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Followup-For: Bug #212988

I just compiled a copy of turck-mmcache today, and absolutely love it.  
It's working nearly perfectly on my system, integrating well with PHP4 
and Apache.  This doesn't seem like a terrifically difficult package to 
put in: like all the other php4 extensions, it should theoretically only 
require the mmcache.so file to be put in /usr/lib/php4/20020429/ and 
some basic modifications to php.ini in /etc/php4/apache that Adam Conrad 
already has a template for doing...  The administration php file might 
take a little more work (maybe add it into the webserver directories as 
phpmyadmin adds itself), but shouldn't be a huge pain.  I wouldn't mind 
doing the work to put this package in Debian, if a developer will 
sponsor me and take care of the uploading to the archives.
As for the stability issues: if you don't want to risk instability, 
don't install it - I think it's well worth it, as my aging machine went 
from 4 second page generation times with a very hacked up phpBB to 0.4 
second page generation times.
Since there hasn't been any activity on this for 38 days, I'm not sure 
exactly what's going on with the present DD Jonathan Oxer who has 
offered to package this.  Please let me know what would be the most 
expedient way to get mmcache into Debian.  I'm willing to help however I
