Jerry, I don't think that this is quite right.  I'm willing to take over
releases if need be.  Any time that I've tried to push on this in the
past the current maintainer has gotten offended and promised to eventually
do something.  We did have a change in maintainer a few years ago, and I
get the idea that that person got burned out by the savannah problems.
I'll take it over if that's OK with the current maintainer.  I'm not a
great expert on all of the fine points of mail delivery, but I do have
an interest in modernizing the code base and adding new features.
