RFS: klatexformula

Dear mentors,

I am looking for a sponsor for my package "klatexformula".

* Package name    : klatexformula
  Version         : 3.2.1-1
  Upstream Author : Philippe Faist <philippe.faist@bluewin.ch>
* URL             : http://klatexformula.sourceforge.net/
* License         : GPL
  Section         : tex

It builds these binary package:
klatexformula - GUI to easily get an image from a LaTeX formula or equation

The upload would fix these bugs: 551335

I started working on the package about year ago and worked already with a 
sponsor on this, who however lost the interest in the package. I would really 
like to see the package in Debian, as it proviedes an nice GUI for typing 
equations and drag them as pictures into presentations. 

The package can be found on mentors.debian.net:
- URL: http://mentors.debian.net/debian/pool/main/k/klatexformula
- Source repository: deb-src http://mentors.debian.net/debian unstable main 
contrib non-free
- dget 



The build system has changed upstream and now Lintian gives some warnings:

W: klatexformula: non-dev-pkg-with-shlib-symlink usr/lib/libklfbackend.so.3.2 
W: klatexformula: non-dev-pkg-with-shlib-symlink usr/lib/libklfapp.so.3.2 
W: klatexformula: non-dev-pkg-with-shlib-symlink usr/lib/libklftools.so.3.2 
W: klatexformula: package-name-doesnt-match-sonames libklfapp3.2 
libklfbackend3.2 libklftools3.2

As I understand it I could solve these by creating three library packages and 
accompaninging development packages. However, as klatexformula is a small 
program and I doubt that there is interest in the lib and -dev packages, can 
these simply be ignored (and overriden), or is it preferred to have the "full" 
set of lib and dev packages?

Kind regards
