I'm just looking through the list now and I see some programs that, at
least in my opinion we should drop if nobody is actively maintaining
them:  azureus, dvdbackup, handbrake, nicotine, and d4x. All of these
are pretty fringe apps except for maybe azureus, which is just plain
slow and buggy (or was the last time I used it).

I don't know much about the deps/makedeps, but if any of them are tied
to the other fringe apps we should look at removing them entirely as
well...just my two cents of course. I admit though I was a bit
surprised to see we had 4267 packages in extra--even if half of those
are x86_64 that's a still a shedload of maintenance.
