Sorry for the delay on responding to this; I guess my present method
of bug accounting and such (leaving mails marked unread) has some bugs
itself  ;-)

Anyway, there was some discussion about using the actual Moria sources
(after someone else found them) back a long time ago, but I'm unable
to find the discussion.  As such, I don't remember the reasons for it,
but whatever they were, it was decided to keep the Debian repackaging.

That being said, if you (or someone else) wants to play around with it
and use the original sources, that's certainly fine - we'd love to get
a revised submission to do that.
