well, i am in conversation with him and not entirely convinced that
i do actually want to package libspf/libsrs. while i think
that the library should definitely be in debian just to give out
users a choice, i am afraid that maintaining it will expose me to
more of the politics than i am willing to handle.

also, i don't use either of the libraries myself, so i cannot make
a technical statement. if libspf2 is really more advanced, then by
all means, libspf's use should not be fostered, even though that's
a harsh call for its author. but i feel that only someone who's
tried them both can make a statement here.

until that statement is made, i will leave the two ITPs as RFPs. if
i choose to package them in the end, i will definitely drop
"official" from the descriptions. if someone else packages them,
i urge her/him to do the same.
