RFS: multixterm -- drive multiple xterms separately or together

I'm looking for a sponsor for the following package:

Title: multixterm -- drive multiple xterms separately or together
ITP: #353777

* Package name    : multixterm
  Version         : 1.8  
  Upstream Author : Don Libes <don@libes.com>  
* URL             : http://expect.nist.gov/example/
* License         : Public domain                
  Description     : drive multiple xterms separately or together

 Multixterm creates multiple xterms that can be driven together or

 In its simplest form, multixterm is run with no arguments and commands are
 interactively entered in the first entry field. Press return (or click the
 "new xterm" button) to create a new xterm running that command.

 Keystrokes in the "stdin window" are redirected to all xterms started by
 multixterm. xterms may be driven separately simply by focusing on them.

 The stdin window must have the focus for keystrokes to be sent to the
 xterms. When it has the focus, the color changes to aquamarine. As
 characters are entered, the color changes to green for a second. This
 provides feedback since characters are not echoed in the stdin window.

 Typing in the stdin window while holding down the alt or meta keys sends an
 escape character before the typed characters. This provides support for
 programs such as emacs.

The package is {lintian,linda} clean [0], builds in a pbuilder chroot and
passes the piuparts tests.

You can find the package here:
