Okay, I think I've sorted everything out except for one chunk of one
file, where I haven't yet been able to contact the author. I think I
might just take that chunk out for now, and get the package moving. Just
for background, Roland reminded me of this prior related discussion:


I think I've cleared everything but that one chunk of ebdb-gnus.

If that's okay, I'll do a few more compiler-warning cleanups, and add
the package as an external.
