I intend to orphan the nwrite package.  It is a simple package, with no
upstream development to worry about.  In other words, it requires basic
policy maintenance.

The package description is:
 Nwrite is a replacement for the standard write program that lets you write
 directly to the terminal of another logged-in user without the overhead of
 talk taking over the full screen or the other user having to respond first.
 Nwrite's advantages over traditional write include the ability to send the
 same message simultaneously to multiple users, and a receiver-configurable
 message format, including a tag at the start of each line that identifies
 the sender.
