Well, I see two problems with that. First, I can't promise to always be able
to find time to address requests. Second is that I'm not familiar with most
of the implementation and I wouldn't really feel confident making changes to
it. Therefore I think it would be better if there's someone else on the list
willing to take the maintainer's job. If not, however, I guess that me as
the maintainer would still be better than no maintainer at all, so I might
try and fix it here and there, asking for tolerance if I break something.

BTW, does anybody know if Jeremy Siek - the author of the library - is still
somewhere around? I'd feel much better if I could ask for rationale about
why some things are the way they are.
