I haven't tried your package yet, but I invite you to help me maintain
this package. There are many things on my plate already and it would
be good to work with you, ;-)

I plan to work on packaging/uploading bumblebee after 9th this month,
it's not so urgent as bbswitch is still in NEW. Again, help is
