Smolt - a better hardware database

OpenSuse recently adopted Smolt as their hardware database tool.
Shouldn't Ubuntu follow their example?
There have been a few specs about creating a better hardware database
for Ubuntu but none of them succeded.
Smolt is much more mature now, it's open, and it's already used by 2
major distros (Fedora, Suse)
There is also a patch that adds Ubuntu support
But it might be outdated by now.
Can anyone finally package Smolt for Ubuntu and make Ubuntu use it in
place of our old hwdb/hwtest tool?
