I just looked at this, to see how hard it would be to package. The first
thing that I noticed is that there are no copyright notices, or license
agreements provided with the source code. This makes the package
impossible to distribute. Is the author willing to GPL it? 
I don't have the time right now to look into this, as I will be away from
net access for about a week, but I can look into this further if you are
interested. Other than that it doesn't look too hard to package.
