Actually, I was mistaken. The last AUR mass cleanup was based on the
last package action, last maintainer action and the out-of-date flag
(not the out-of-date timestamp), as there are no out-of-date timestamps
in the current stable release of the AUR. The commit I linked to in my
last mail adds such a field to the DB tho. So this'll be in 1.8.0 :)
