So maintain it. You don't need to be a dev to write an ebuild, and
there are enough devs who are happy to throw an eye over user donated
ebuilds and commit them to the tree...

Removing a package from portage simply because no one has commited the
up-to-date version you want is silly. If the only problem is
no version bumping, provide the ebuild. Someone will commit it. I've
done that for a few packages, it's not hard. 

I don't know anything about borg specifically, but as a user, I would
not want to see packages being removed from portage just because the
devs are too busy to write version bump ebuilds.
