It would be possible to use the packager for this purpose, but I'm not
so sure it would be a great idea to do this automatically. It is a
harder question than it seems to determine if a package is being
uploaded for the first time (nearly everything is "new" in testing, as
opposed to a verbump in extra).

What could be done is a simple report showing orphan packages with
their last packager, so at a glance you could see if you should be
adopting anything.
