I personally don't see a problem with this, assuming there's nothing in
the upstream docs indicating otherwise.  I'm CC'ing the listed
maintainer.  I don't recall if Duane is still active or not, but if
enough time passes to indicate that he's not, then feel free to assume
maintainership of this one and make the changes yourself then submit it
to us.
