As this has gone unanswered for one week, and the scim-tables UVF
exception is requested by me, even though all I can say is "I don't
know", I figure I'd better say it aloud. :-)

I was approached by HOU "freeflying" Zhengpeng (cc:ed him) early in the
dapper development period about the main inclusion of SCIM related
packages.  I was not very interested and told him so, and I was busy
working on getting various SCIM related package into shape at that time.

Then at the end of January we had a talk again about this.  I told him
that due to the reluctance of upstream for supporting old releases and
the long lifetime of dapper, I am not really confident to ask SCIM
package for main inclusion at this stage (I am not familar with the
codebase myself, therefore security fixes, if any, is going to be a
problem).  But he was very eager to get them into main for CJK support,
so I decided to be impartial on this and told him to go ahead, but just
don't expect my help.

I am therefore not involved in the main inclusion processes of these
SCIM packages, and haven't been contacted about this issue since that
talk (altough I read around and know a little about the progress).
