[aur-general] Orphaning my packages

I have orphaned my unsupported packages as I will no longer be using Arch.

I don't agree with Arch's reluctance to fix bugs which they consider 
upstream. I recently installed Mandriva on one of my systems and was 
amazed to see all the features that are broken in Arch's GNOME, due to 
them being upstream bugs, fully working in that distribution.

As my principle reason for using GNU/Linux is to get work done and 
Arch's philosophy seems, to me, to be working against this I feel it is 
time to depart from Arch.

My packages were:

* asl
* bouml
* freehdl
* gnome-hearts
* subcommander
