Yes I am.

But since there's no news from the XML_DTD upstream author, I see no
point in going further. We need that to be fixed first.

I'd have helped if I had time. Currently, I'm busy with other stuff,
sorry. BTW, I don't think it's a good idea to rush in before Wheezy is
frozen. Usually, it's a much better idea to rush to do your package *at
the beginning* of a Debian development, not at the end. That is, I think
you should aim at Wheezy +1, not Wheezy. Anyway, even if you miss the
target of Wheezy, you can always work on backports later on!

It is. XML_DTD is a hard dependency of mdb2_schema, and there's no way
you will be able to upload mdb2_schema without xml_dtd. Have a look at
the pear.php.net site, or download the package.xml from mdb2_schema if
you don't believe me.
