Well that depends.  Do you count community/arch-firefox-search, which
does a full search of the AUR?  (On an unrelated note, why is
searching the AUR in a GUI officially supported but searching it from
the CLI a mortal sin?)

Aurphan does not search the AUR, it organizes info about the AUR
packages you already have installed.  It does not imply AUR packages
are supported, it asks you to volunteer support for them.
