Indeed, this is mostly just due to lack of time. I'll get this sorted
in time for the next meeting, so that maybe you can attend too.

I has been proposed upstream and to Didier; both appear interested.
There is already an experimental branch for Debian with the changes
(and it needs a few small fixes), and Josua (upstream maintainer) has
so far been doing testing on his end, AFAIK.

Yup, will do.
So, as above, please postpone my application until the next meeting,
which IIUC should be September 26.
