I'm not sure I understand .. I suggested that vcg allow itself to be
started in interactive mode, but without specifying any initial file.
I guess it is well-established that upstream is dead, and so anyone
using/shipping this package is on their own. Granted, I don't expect
most Debian packages to deviate strongly from upstream, but if this
software isn't going to be maintained, then we might as well just drop
it now..otherwise we should be willing to accept reasonable feature
requests, related to either of the packaging or development.
