I'll not say, that i didn't expect such answer, but uh. I wonder, why you
didn't reply in private, as debian developers usually do. Whatever.

Maintenance argument is, that you are not working with native dash debian
package, e.g. maintainer, BTS. That means all that "fork/re-do" crap.
You've even convinced Peter to do that. Maybe you have your good reasons
for that, but from my POV they're bad. And it seems to me, that help
to integrate one particular package in debian nicely, is a whole thing
about distribution.

As for code, i did write, that unfortunately, it is not high priority.
After rather quick boot of laptop, especially with custom built
kernels, i have more problems with other perly-bloated packages. Size
reduction and shell-optimized scripts? I'll bring it, hopefully soon.
