impressive (former keyjnote) is unblocking possible?

Hi Release Team,

Due to trademark violation, keyjnote was removed from lenny a bit more
than a week ago. Meanwhile I have uploaded the same version of a new
brand of the project: impressive.

It has been in unstable for 13 days, functionally it is 100% equivalent to the
last release of keyjnote which was in lenny prior removal. I have done only
minor changes to packaging (listed below) to make it even better ;-) (Thanks to
Thomas Viehmann for helping to expedite impressive through NEW queue)

I wonder if there is a way to get impressive into lenny or at least into

 Since the main goal of Debian project is to ship as many useful and
popular packages as possible, it would be great to see impressive there.
According to popcon there are 150 installation of impressive, whenever total
number of keyjnote installations was around 270. And there are no new
bugreports -- imho it says that package is in a good shape ;)

So, changes from the last release (same version) of keyjnote:

 impressive  (0.10.2r-2) unstable; urgency=low

   * Resolving problems which forbid impressive to pass through NEW:
     - fixing debian/copyright to match upstream: GPLv2 firm
     - adding the source for the demo.pdf
     - added missing copyright holders into debian/copyright
     - building demo.pdf from the shipped with debian .tex source

impressive (0.10.2r-1) unstable; urgency=low

   * New Upstream Version (version suffix 'r' stands for 'r'enamed to
     provide proper Replaces):
     - Project was renamed to impressive
     - Manpage is shipped by the upstream (closes: #482581)
   * Migrated VCS for the packaging into git, added Vcs fields to
   * Boosted policy to 3.8.0 (no changes needed)
   * Removed obsolete manpage since upstream ships manpage now
   * Changed gs -> ghostscript-x in Recommends
   * Created transitional package keyjnote
