Here's a packaging cleanup and new upstream release request. (This one
I also had packaged initially from scratch as I didn't find it :/.)

Attached the working and tested patch. I've also renamed the Vcs
fields to makes this less confusing overall, but that will require
changes on the alioth side (probably rename + compat symlinks?).
