Well I'm not 100% sure but do you mean the already orphan packages or
all not required packages?
Most likely there is lot of stuff they will be dropper later on... but I
think they should first be orphaned before we start doing that.

Purely speaking about the "movable to AUR" (not the required) packages,
but I would instantly pick up: avidemux, reaver, httpie, python-irc if
they would be orphan.

maybe some of the useful stuff from that list would be picked up by
others too?

Ups, I forgot powerdns-recursor in the [testing] repository, the
package is in that repo for quite a while. will move when arriving at home.

gufw requires more work and new dependencies + testing. It was an orphan
package and I picked that up like aprox. 1.5 weeks ago to mark that i
start working on that topic. Will accelerate and to that asap.
