I'd be happy if it get merged.
So far it seems fine and I think once it has been merged to the master
branch, it will be tested and used by more people.

Furthermore, don't feel forced to ask for permission.
I don't want to maintain xfc4-dict any longer and I'd be happy if Andre
or you would like to do it.
