I looked at this.  I see that some upstream somewhere have added a git
submodule.  git submodules are just absolutely awful.  Urgh.  I had to
strip the submodule out of the git upstream history and add
+nosubmodule to the upstream version to stop my tools from
malfunctioning.  The results of me doing that are here:

Anyway, having done that so I could read it, I reviewed the packaging
and the patches and so on.  It looks good to me.  I built it.
lintian liked it.

I see no reason not to upload this package to Debian.  Specifically, I
mean ab61aacabb2e75f5d2ca447b4d597e909c5e2ba4.

Does anyone object to my git submodule surgery?  The lintian warnings
about manpage wrapping are not important, I think.

If I emailed you from an address @fyvzl.net or @evade.org.uk, that is
a private address which bypasses my fierce spamfilter.
