I also would be happy if wicd would be back in shape in Debian, so I'd
of course sponsor it again, too.

Indeed.

The main reason why I haven't uploaded it as QA upload already is that
wicd-curses is slightly broken since 1.7.3. This likely requires
patching upstream code to get it fixed. See the TODO at
http://anonscm.debian.org/cgit/collab-maint/wicd.git/tree/debian/changelog#n3

As mentioned before, I'd even co-maintain it and would care about
general packaging, but I don't feel python-savvy enough to patch
upstream code or fix python-specific packaging issues.

That's already done.
