I just wanted to chime in on Alexander's (netchild@) mail and I fully 
agree. Looking at base we already have a lot of contrib and since we 
need to adapt each software project to our build framework a lot tends 
to get dated quickly and currently is so I don't see the benefit 
importing more at all. I would also like to highly advice against 
importing software which is considered dead upstream, .

If anything, something like or 
similar which would be very easy to maintain and is active

Best regards,
