[BioC] is Biostrings being maintained?

Does anyone know if Biostrings is being maintained?  I see the version 
number bumped between Bioconductor releases, but the maintainer's 
(Saikat Debroy) e-mail bounces at the University of Wisconsin.

One thing I'd like to add support for matching amino acid strings.  It 
seems to be partially implemented, so I wonder if anyone else has a 
later version than is to be included in 1.8.

Alternatively, if anyone knows of an R package that already has the 
capability to do high-speed matching of multiple strings (with an amino 
acid alphabet), I'd appreciate the pointer.
