I can take this three, as I use some of them (although, yes,
occassionally, but I kind-of-know them). I have never directly touched
libole-storage-lite-perl, but as you say they are not moving targets,
I think it will not be much of a problem.

If I have some time, I will take a look at them as well... I don't use
them, am completely incompetent regarding statistics, but will
evaluate them.

All of those modules will be group-maintained - I will upload them,
but they will be part of the pkg-perl group's repository.
