Sounds interesting.  Don't know that tool myself.

First step is to file an RFP or ITP bugreport about it.  I recommend 
using the tool "reportbug" for that - found in the package by the same 

   reportbug wnpp

...and then follow the command-line wizard.

When that's done, you can hand the resulting bugnumber to this list and 
at other Debian-related places, trying to convince someone of the 
relevancy of maintaining a packaging of that project.
