Yes, I still object the ITP. If you firmly believe that it can not
(easily) be integrated into Emacs main tree, at least put it into
emacs-goodies-el: alpaca is still *a single file*, we don't want
1-filer packages in the archive. Really.

You did mail the maintainer in this thread, but no reply was
received. Turn it into a feature request against emacs-goodies-el,
provide patch, ..., at worst upload a patched package to DELAYED/1000
(which seems a bit premature right now).

Cc-ing emacs-goodies-el maintainers.
