This week-end cleanup will only be of package on the sublist that I 
submitted to inspection/discussion on this ML.  The other packages on the 
global wiki list (like the packages Damir discussed) will be considered 
for possible removal in the next week or so.  The above keepers are 
packages that were on the sublist and for which a dev showed interest in 
adopting or keeping.   Before removing anything, I'll check if someone has 
adopted it since I made the list of orphans. Therefore, any package that 
has a maintainer is automatically a keeper.
