I think the time has come I should stop deluding myself I would ever be
able to fix these issues by myself. I am thus orphaning the package, it
turned out to be a much bigger task than I expected. Sorry.
I hope it will be able to find a more skilled and appropriate
maintainer. I have released the ownership in pkgdb.
