No. It just exists in a branch in an (experimental, fluid) repository where
other nonfree software (partially as a base for other builds to be upstreamed)
is located in, which is why I mentioned "policy reasons". If that's an exception
I could link to the cgit, I'll do it of course.

If the repo is not okay, I can send a mbox formated patch.
