Well we can see if anyone really wants it I guess. I'm not against
uploading it but it does mean more work in terms of bugs etc. If it's
well maintained then it's not a problem but if it isn't...

Yeah apparently people might like this. We had a discussion about this
on IRC. libburn hasn't been updated far enough for us to use the SVN
version but we could upload the non-libburn version for now I guess.
I suspect libburn is unmaintained. The maintainer isn't a DD and isn't
in NM but we should probably check that there's no progress on 383579
and 426016 before we consider hijacking it.

ema do you agree we can drop it? Any users reading this want to

No, I mean even with the patch not to save on cancel. I probably need
to debug this more but it looked very flaky to me.
If you try it on etch/amd64 3 or 4 times does it work consistently? Try
taking screenshots, taking them under different names and cancelling
them in various orders.

Okie, I'll upload it when it's ITP'd - it does look useful.

I use dict on the commandline a lot so it might be useful to me.

The meal not the drink I hope :p
Again if someone cares enough to ITP it I'll upload it after checking it
Uploading something that's entirely NEW is a bit more work obviously in
terms of checking the packaging over and the copyright file etc.
