If you are willing to maintain it (and maybe find other like-minded
people to help you), I think that would certainly be a thing to try.

And if we can find *nobody* that ends up caring and maintaining, then
I guess we should remove it, rather than end up with *two* effectively
unmaintained copies of NTFS drivers.

Not that two unmaintained filesystems are much worse than one :-p
