Thanks for the update. I've been quite busy lately, but I still intend
(hope) to take care of this upgrade soon.

Good to have that pointed out, thanks. I've added it to my checklist
for this upgrade.

Upstream's "master" branch has the "9.x-dev" alias. Unfortunately, I
think they're going for >=6 [1,2]. Hopefully it won't be too
incompatible in practice.
