Yes, there is. We did something similar during the last AUR cleanup
(about three months ago iirc) to delete all packages that have been
flagged for a long time. We also pushed a patch to aur.git [1] that
adds out-of-date timestamps to packages in the package details view
which might make life for TUs (and users as well) a bit easier (will be
in 1.8.0).

There is a feature request for a "Flag for deletion" button [2], feel
free to join the discussion in the comments section. I'll look into that
later. This probably won't go into 1.8.0 tho.
