iSCSI target software

Hello all,

It seems like we have two options if we want to run an iSCSI target (a 
"server") in lucid:

- iscsitarget: widely used, but seems unmaintained.

- tgt: the project seems more active, it's been recommended to me by 
people who had to use both, but the Ubuntu package lack an init script / 
upstart job to start tgtd.

Both are in universe.

I am wondering what people think of these two options, and if it would 
be appropriate to write a MIR to get one of those in main.
