I don't foresee a problem maintaining the first, and I'll take that
over for now.  The calibre package depends on it, and I want to help
Kevin Fenzi out. :-)

The second is *much* more problematic.  Steadily increasing numbers of
odd requirements make python-mwlib decidedly un-fun and time consuming
to maintain.  Some of the requirements drag in large dependency
stacks, others are not yet packaged for Fedora, and some of those are
tiny, one-off code drops that I worry will go unmaintained upstream in
the long run.

So in short, I don't think I'll be taking over python-mwlib.
