G-Archiver, it's been nearly a month, what is thy status?

Nearly a month ago a story broke about g-archiver, a program to back up your Gmail emails. I wrote about it here. There was a piece of "debug" code left in the author(s) suggested it was an innocent mistake and it would be corrected quickly (here). But nearly a month later there is still no patch, no fix, and it appears no further response from the author(s). Shortly after the story broke I searched for different versions of the software, and all I could find was only the 1 version. At this point I'm going to assume that the author(s) were not serious about the product and more or less released a totally immature product written for personal use, or don't really care about the people using their product.
