I do understand how to work with non-free packages, but I wasn't aware
that this package was in non-free when I first responded to Diane's
question.  My mistake for not looking at the upload history more closely
before responding.

I made a binary upload of this package yesterday and got this response:

Which is mildly surprising, because I don't see changes to the package
that would require it go back through NEW [1].  But in any event, it's
in the queue and I will track it.

P.S. I pruned debian-devel from distribution list.
