FWIW, I am willing to do sponsoring. I very (_very_!) seldom get
requests (and I won't sponsor packages that are just lying around in
the repository, of course - I do require an explicit request). I
assumed requests would appear on the IRC channel (to which I am again
a regular listener), but have not seen them.
Anyway - People, feel free to bug me for sponsorship requests.
