OK. I was just wondering if you had contacted him. If he didn't
suggest it, then there's probably no need to pursue that any further.

I've build and tested this version, and overall it looks great. It's
lintian clean, builds fine, and functions as expected. One small thing
I noticed was that the Build-Depends in debian/control on
autotools-dev seems unnecessary. I can build the package without it in
a clean sid chroot.
