i also think automation is not the way to go. but the aur could be a lot 
more userfriendly. 3 things come to my mind:

1) removal request button - for the mainatiner only.
2) mark as dublicate button - needs 3 (? to prevent abuse) votes from 
different users
3) orphran request button - needs 1 vote or a percentage of total usage 
votes - is only available when the package is flaged out of date for 
7-14 days.

all requests are send to the mailing list. So TUs still have full 
control, but ist pretty handy for users that are not on the ml.

Another thing: Multiple maintainers would be realy nice... although 
anybody should put more thought into that, as it could easily become 
pretty messy.

Cool think, i just can't make up a usecase for: 

Cheers, Ulf
