Intent to help maintaining libxml++s

As confirmed by QA team that Chris Leishman <masklin@debian.org>, the
maintainer of libxml++{,2.6} is kind of MIA, I would like to help
comaintaining these libs.  I've already file a wishlist bug for
libxml++2.6 (#430142[1]), which contains a preliminary version of
.diff.gz and .dsc against latest upstream version, which fixes various
bugs on BTS. 

As for libxml++, currently it has 2 rdepends, which are ofx and
passepartout.  According to #460407[2], libofx might got removed from
Debian in the nearing future, so that only leaves passepartout.
Currently, its upstream hasn't start the transition, so
libxml++1.0 has to stay for some time.  I'll see if there's anything I
can do to help, so I can be safely removed when it has 0 rdepends.

As for myself, I'm currently maintaining several GTK+/GNOME C++
bindings.  My QA page is at [3].  Hope I'm eligible to help :)
