I didn't have any plans to maintain it.  Looking at the changelog it
doesn't appear that there has been any new work for about the past 2
years.  What I probably will do, though, is to rebuild the package
with better metadata.  It would definitely be better for this to be in
some official repository.  Tools like this and perhaps Zenity are
great for an environment like the Neo because they are easy tools to
create finger-friendly utilities without having to muck around with
any serious programming or toolchains, etc.
