I don't think it's unmaintained, Aleix is still working on it. Yes, things 
have regressed seriously in 13.10, but instead of replacing something that 
we've tested over multiple cycles with something we'll only test for a single 
cycle ( and a LTS at that ) is not a good idea IMHO.

I'd rather actively work with upstream and get issues resolved than switch to 
something completely untested only to find out that things don't work like we 
want them to after the 14.04 release.
