If nobody else is interested I think I might take this one - I find it
handy.  I forked a copy to github and merged in the patches from
portage, and will see about addressing the other two bugs (though from
what I can tell one seems rare and the other seems similar to a known
issue in dispatch-conf so they should be low-priority).

If there are other issues festering that I should be aware of before
keeping it around please let me know.

Not being a master of perl or portage hooks I'm not sure how much I'll
be able to extend it, but I can at least be responsive to bugs and
patches, and can make the decision to terminate it if it becomes
unmanageable.  If anybody is interested in contributing to it (or
taking it over if you'll be more active) let me know.
