I'd be happy to take on maintenance of this package, and may be anything
else that's Qubes required but seems to be lapsing in Debian.
I'll do the necessary in the morning.
Also, I wonder if there would be value in getting Qubes packages in to
Debian, so they can be installed straight in to HVM - I seem to recall
this was raised some time back, but dont recall outcome. Waste of time?
