Just noting should anyone wonder at the 15 days, this package has been
masked since (apparently) the first of December, just not last-rited.
Additionally, it has been causing various problems for quite some time
before that, and on the kde lists I've been recommending one of the other
two backends for well over a year, now.
So hopefully this will get anyone who's still on it to switch to
something else rather better, and this thing can be put to rest.
