Agreed. This package is in quite a bad shape, mostly because latest
upstream release (albeit recent) is fubar. The last package maintainer
gave up for this reason, and because he was not willing to fix all
outstanding issues on the Debian side. As long as either a maintainer
step in (which is willing to do that) or upstream releases a decent
version, the package is quite useless.

The most reasonable course of action from the Debian POV is to remove
the package from testing.

Can you please do so?
