I don't see the point of packaging an old library because one program
(which is not yet part of Debian) requires it. Is the API very
different? Have you talked with Nikto's author? Why not migrating
Nikto from the Whisker to the Whisker2 API? Sure, it's more work, but
it prevents us from packaging useless and obsolete software.
