What do you mean? If you mean that the attached code needs polish, I
guess you're probably right, but it's been 3 years since I wrote it. :-)
If your code is polished, has docs, and tests, then maybe you can attach
it to the ticket and ping Tobias. If he doesn't respond, then I guess
Function_types is looking for a new maintainer, and you could be it.
