I've carefully avoided being listed as the MPW maintainer... :-)

So I sent out a message beginning with "Last chance" to the MPW
list yesterday, asking volunteers, and as of yet there's been no
response except some silly automated "you have a virus" message
(from NS mail running on OS X, yeah right).  So I'd say to give
it a week, and if no one speaks up, let's start removing things
(there's plenty - top-level config/mpw* from both repositories,
etc).
