Sure, but, if you take lesstif you have to also take responsibility for 
nedit, which doesn't mean that you have to maintain it, but you have to 
recognize that a lesstif release that works for an in-house app but 
makes nedit crash upon opening a document is unacceptable.  That's 
pretty much why the lesstif package is stuck where it is: it didn't work 
with nedit.

If you accept that, go for it.
