I brought up the issue as soon as I saw it back in the archive and 
basically the main reason it was dropped from Ubuntu was lack of support 
upstream [1].  It was dropped from Debian because it was unbuildable 
[0].  Debian seems to be supporting it again and building it with 
gcc-4.1, so it was put back in.
