I would be interested in co-maintaining this package.  I don't think I
have the time to give it the full attention it would need (e.g.  filing
bugs on packages that fail), but I could handle it with one or two other

I'd hate to see piuparts disappear...  So if there's someone else who is
interested but wasn't planning on adopting because of the time
commitment, let's team up!
