If it's ASL, that means we could just grab it (as could anyone else
whose distribution is ASL-compatible).  But I certainly wouldn't
want to do that without the author's clear agreement.

I think what matters here is to avoid creating a useless fork.
If the original developer is still doing active development on
the module, we should either merge that effort with ours or
leave well alone.  In practice, a merge would imply development
moving to this list.

If David is happy to subscribe to this list and make it his
primary forum for the module, then +1.
