I can make the time to apply patches to the maintainers working tree, Michael
Biebl offered to sponsor an upload towards this goal. Tomorrow holds
some spare time.

The resulting upload would be targetted at experimental.

I'm also the most junior member of the maintenance team, with the least
influence within Debian. My maintenance scope is mostly limited to update-rc.d,
startpar and other dependency based boot problems. Take that into account.

I would not oppose an NMU. Especially not after a long period of inaction by
the listed maintainers.
