Fate of the message: Filed while trying to think of the best way to put
my response, then forgotten.

Current maintainer of vty: You.  I wrote vty some time ago because I
needed terminal IO for a roguelike project and could not get curses to
act in a sane way; then a while later I did a different project in
Haskell, and the Obvious Thing To Do was translate my understood
library.  #haskell persuaded me to release it, and I regret this greatly
- jyp picked up vty for use in Yi, and now I'm stuck maintaining a
library I neither use, care about, nor to any great extent remember how
it works.  I'd dearly love to get this thing off my shoulders - will you
take it?  There is definitely a need.
