If there are people who are willing and able to do the work... that was 
actually part of the reason I closed it. Appearantly for years there was no 
one to tackle this.

(And if there is no progress again within the next two years or so, I'll 
likely close this again.)

But no one did. Maybe it's worth having a BoF about this at next DebConf? 

good luck & have fun,
