Uploaded given your explicit request to do so.

Still, I'll refuse to do this kind of sponsoring in the future:
- The amount of work this sponsoring took me is probably way more than would
  have been necessary; I had to explicitly request all this further information,
  no ready-made packages were provided for download.
- The package needs some love anyhow, even lintian shows a number of warnings.
- No idea why the debdiff had a *dos* encoding.
