Is this something you can pick back up? It's been sitting for about 60 days now. I know $reallife has been hammering you pretty hard. If you want to drop this package it looks like Remi is willing to pick it up, but it's your call.
If Remi would like to run with it, go for it! I really don't have time right now.
Well I take it.
So I close this bug as duplicate of new review.
