I realise that. It still amounts to a 21MB increase in the repository
size and I hadn't seen any prior discussion of this in any of the
lists I inhabit. A (very) quick rummage through the mailman archives
failed to elicit anything either.
Based on Mike's response, I understand why it would be difficult to
maintain it as a port. It's definitely a worthwhile project and I
look forward to seeing the results.
