I assume so, yes. But not by myself as this is outside of my C/C++
capabilities. (In other words: I hope that Manuel — or someone else —
will find time to tackle this at some point with one of the next
upstream releases.)

Oh, and of course: Patches are welcome!

If there are well working patches, I can also apply them in the
upstream branches and do upstream releases with them. I just can't
write new C++ code from scratch. (I other words: Within the Aptitude
team, I'm primarily the package maintainer and Manuel does nearly all
of the upstream development.)
