    Eh, powershell is already in Debian.  Or did you mean taking over
packaging from Remco, not from the upstream author?

Description: powerful terminal emulator for GNOME
 PowerShell is a terminal emulator for the X11 Window System.  It is built
 on top of the GTK+ Toolkit (www.gtk.org) and GNOME (www.gnome.org).  It
 supports many very useful features such as the ability to have many
 terminals embedded in a single window, separated by notebook tabs. It also
 has URL recognition capabilities and things like transparency, pixmap
 backgrounds, etc.

    Hm.  Didn't know we even had an unofficial sponsors page.  Someone
needs to publicize that a bit.

    Posting here was a good start.  Post also the location of your
diff.  I don't have a whole lot of spare time, but I might be able to
sponsor you if it already looks pretty clean.
