If Bastien shows the green light, I am looking forward to giving back
something to the community: maintanance and a good set of illustrative
examples on worg. For the past 2 years I have just been utilizing what
you guys have been doing, in a state of haze, for obvious reasons.

Makes sense. As long as there is a maintainer, a more exotic language
can be supported. Perhaps my contribution will increase the popularity
of Asymptote within the Org community and therefore the probability of
long term survival of ob-asymptote.el.

I will be in standby mode until Bastien tells me what happens next.

All the best,
