That's about 6 month and not four years.
Unless you plan to diligently maintain it, please do not
reintroduce it into Debian.
I plan to maintain it good enouth to trust it in a server application

Feel free to inspect the bugs that are attached to my maintainer address
if you want to make up your mind if I care for my packages.

If plr is unmaintained, it should not be released with lenny.
I fail to see the relevance of this paragraph related to the plr issue.
