I assume you mean "flagged out-of-date" rather than "orphaned"?

I think it would be easier to screw up and then clean up (i.e. run the script despite the risk and then fix any mistakes from there) than to manually check *all* of them.

Number of packages wrongfully flagged out of date that require fixing < 525

If someone just happens to stumble upon an out-of-date package, all it would take is a quick visit to the project page to check the latest version and then un-flagging.

Well, depending on how you look at it, you would still be checking the same amount of packages.

Eh, whatever...
