Juergen, I think this package is useful and is looking for maintainer, so if you have time and energy, I'm OK with upgrading it, but I suggest testing it first.

I guess it's the same stuff if the code is there with no modification. If we could have this port checked in to the ports/ repository, this would be great. Basically I'd concentrate on delivering good end-user experience Thanks for working on it. Lots of people will apprecite it. -- Wojciech A.
