Popt package

I propose to transfer maintainership of the popt and libpopt0 packages 
to Nicholas Wourms.  Nicholas has agreed to take over if the list 
agrees.  I think this is a good move for several reasons:

1) one less package for me to maintain (yippee!)

2) Nicholas is currently working with Gerritt and Harold to provide db2, 
db3, and db4 packages.  db, and popt, are both needed for a working 
setup-installable RPM package, which is Nicholas's focused goal right 
now.  So there's a certain synergy.

3) Nicholas has been working with the folks who maintain RPM -- and popt 
-- so he is in a better position than I to push bugfixes to popt upstream.

If there are no objections, then today's popt-1.6.4-4 package will be 
the last one published by me; future ones will come from Nicholas.
