I can sponsor it, but you might want to have a look at what David said,
as I am too quite a perfectionist if it comes to packages. :-)

It can, it's a bit alike RPA's upcoming create-a-Debian-source-pkg-from-
an-RPA-port feature which will help us maintainers a lot as well.  :)
Only RPA has QA and fixes/changes can be committed there and be more

maintainer I think.
