Yeah. Of course it's possible. I'm more or less just curious if it's
actually being worked on. Seems the project is dead, and Debian has
debated removing it from the repositories as a result [1], so I'm not
expecting much, but I thought I'd throw it out there.

Right now, I'm only minting 20-bit tokens. It would be nice to mint 24-bit
or larger. :)
