Hi Jeroen (and all others),

thanks for your quick reply! I'm pretty sure about the change,
I just wanted to make sure that I'm not considered "hijacking
someone's package".

As for my contribution: I'd be happy to do more, and I'm monitoring
wnpp for packages I feel knowledgeable enough about to offer my
help and/or ask for sponsoring, but the right one just hasn't come
across yet. ;-)

Thanks again,
