I admit that I was very slow fixing that package, but I did it now, and I'm maintaining it again.
Two people reacted in the comments in the hope that I would fix it, so it seems useful to at least someone.

As for the comment I pinned about OverlayFS, mdevaev answered that as well: round-robin writes are a valid reason why someone would use AUFS. OverlayFS does not have that feature.

When properly updating the package version to 4.13 (4.11 is indeed EOL), we're on a branch where the last commit is from 6 days ago [1] so it seems to me that the patchset is well-maintained, no worries here.

Could deletion be reconsidered?
