Trond originally packaged it and we haven't significantly changed it
(just rebuilt it, as far as I can tell) since, so why take away the
credit from a clueful packager?

We tend to remove the Packager line if we make significant changes
to the package.  We make significant changes to many packages, so
very few packages have a Packeger line in them.
