Well, I really do not care about sexyness of my work. I have just
participated in the development of the program (actually, it is
just a script for vim), which seems to be very interesting for
me (so I hoped it may be interesting for others as well). I have
created a Debian package for it and I thought, that it would be
nice if the package begun to be part of the official Debian
distribution so that other people won't have to reinvent the
wheel. I certainly do not have time to maintain more packages or
to do any other works just to allow it. If there is no other way,
I will maintain the package on my own website, but it seems silly
to me.

What's so wrong with maintaing just one package?
