I'm not really maintaining it anymore; it was originally written for
various projects in the Xorg and freedesktop community, who have since
switched away from it due to performance improvements in libtool.  I
didn't realize that dolt was still significantly faster than current
libtool.  Supposedly, the latest version of libtool uses some similar
tricks, generating a much smaller script rather than a
multi-thousand-line shell script.

If you're interested in reviving and maintaining dolt, I'm completely in
favor of you doing so. :)
