I was angling for that one :-P

Note that I had crated a patch to the newer of the packages and it is
attached as a comment.  How does your patch compare to mine?

I sent an email to the maintainer (clamy) earlier this week and have heard
nothing back as yet.

I was going to adopt it, but if you would like it, that is okay by me.
