Bug#657083: RFA: aspic -- Line art generator

Package: wnpp
Severity: normal

I request an adopter for the aspic package.

The package description is:
 Aspic is a program that generates line art images from a text
 description of a picture that contains commands such as "line", "box",
 "circle", and "arc". Aspic's concept is similar to the "pic" command.
 Output is either encapsulated PostScript, or Scalable Vector Graphics
 (SVG). Quite complex pictures can be constructed from Aspic's
 primitives, which include facilities for positioning text alongside
 graphics, and the use of colour.

Upstream is Philip Hazel, of Exim and PCRE fame. I've packaged it
because it is a build-dependency for the documentation of the pmw
package; but other than that I have no vested interest, and it might
therefore be better served by someone who actually uses it.

It's a fairly small and straightforward piece of code, and is therefore
a good choice as a first package.
