I must admit that I might have refused to make an upload of one of the
packages Benjamin suggested, even if he sent it to the mailing lists,
for a combination of a couple of reasons:

- I don't know him (yet), so I wouldn't have trusted his patch and
  packaging, but instead would have to look closely at the package just
  as if I was doing the NMU myself

- I currently have the feeling that we shouldn't keep old TeX-related,
  hardly maintained packages alive, but instead either kick them out or
  integrate them into TeX Live

- I don't have much time frequently
