Yes. TransGaming asked us not to
(http://lists.debian.org/debian-devel/2002/05/msg02463.html). In
accordance with their wishes, the developer in question decided to
retract his ITP.

FWIW, they have the exact same objections to a build-from-source
approach. Gentoo used to provide a Winex-cvs ebuild until TransGaming
requested it be removed

Andreas, please reconsider this ITP.
