Ok, I filed an orphan request from the new account. I fully understand
and appreciate your doubts about my story. Maybe my question was a bit
naive. If it's not possible or to much trouble then it's ok for me to
use a different username. More important is that I get back control
over my package. Hoping the orphan request will be successfull soon..
