Yeah, well, some brains would help too.

Be that as it were, did you see my follow-up post in respect of the 
(actually relevant) MFSAS package and it's "orphaned" (or not) status?

The package (source version in the Archives) seems to be basically OK. 
Did the maintainer just disappear off the face of the earth?

According to my reading of the README, this should instigate an 
"orphaned" annotation in the DESCRIPTION file, but there doesn't seem to 
be one.
