I've now done the same exercise with my stuff, and adopted most of my 
orphaned deps - would have been more, but Travis got there first. :)

If I've picked anything that someone feels is "theirs", please let me 
know - I've no problem with giving up anything. A lot of them were 
dorphell's anyway, so I don't think that will be a problem.

I've balked at a couple - libsasl and openssl, to be precise - but if 
nobody else wants them, I'll take them.
