Please unblock package fex

It addresses all currently known issues. It would be great if this could
make it into wheezy still to spare us unneccessary work with supporting
the 20120215-3 on our own.          

F*EX is a file exchange service based on http. The previous versions did
include a java applet (F*IX) that yielded a more fancy UI than the
classic HTML web page. Upstream has dropped the entire java code base as
its maintainer is no longer able to support it. The F*EX maintainer
himself denoted the drop with 

 "F*IX removed because of too many bugs and no maintainer any more" 

in the release notes for the last version.

The current version in wheezy (20120215-3) is still shipping with F*IX.

In the meantime the package was removed from unstable (see #685585) and
is no longer in testing, so I'm closing this request.

On a related note, does the version of fex currently in squeeze have the
same license?
