This isn't possible, apparently, see Raphaël's message
<1125049640.15162.45.camel@pianobar.home.ouaza.com> and its
follow-ups.  Even DSA doesn't contribute to system maintenance.

I made a suggestion which was trivial to implement and did fix a real
problem.  Check the mail archives to see how long it took until it was
acted upon.

I've been privately told that an alioth admin demands hardware in
compensation for his Debian-related work, effectively blackmailing the
DPL.  I don't know if this is true, I hope it's not.
