It isn't unmaintained... what makes you think it is unmaintained?

Compiles fine on my boxen. (4.11, 4-stable, 5.2.1, 5.3-RELEASE-p5)

It has a dependency on Spread (which I think is in ports somewhere).  
It's running in production on a few 5.3 boxes that I know of, likely 
many more that I don't.
