Hope is not a plan. :) How about adding a comment to the effect that
"this is broken, and needs someone to adopt it"? At least that would
explain why it's commented out so that people like me don't un-comment
it and wonder why their box won't boot (true story). It might also
attract an actual human to look at it ...
Nothin' ever doesn't change, but nothin' changes much.
