[development] dba.module maintenance?

while we're talking about contrib modules that we wish were being  
more actively maintained, what's up with the dba.module (database  
administration, http://drupal.org/node/8482)?  this is one of the  
most useful modules in contrib, IMHO.  there hasn't been a commit in  
over 4 weeks, the 4.7 port isn't done, there are quite a few active  
tickets that haven't gotten any attention in longer than that, and  
i've got a minor RTBC patch from 9 weeks ago that still hasn't gone  
in.  anyone seen jeremy at kerneltrap recently? ;)

jeremy, if you're still around and too busy to deal with dba (i know  
we're all too busy), would you be willing/interested in a granting  
cvs access to anyone else to help maintain it?  i'm already spread  
way too thin, so i don't want to actually become the maintainer.   
however, i rely on this module so much (and already know the code  
well enough to have submitted some patches a while ago that were  
committed), that i'd be willing to help commit patches.  any other  
volunteers?  anyone available to roll a patch for a thorough port to  
4.7 (http://drupal.org/node/59073)?
