[aur-general] Orphaning a 1000 packages

I'm the current maintainer of ArchHaskell and within the small team
we've reached the decision to drop support for the huge set of package
owned by the user arch-haskell on AUR.

Currently we maintain 300+ binary packages, and we'd like to keep them
on AUR.  All others should be orphaned (or removed).  Doing that
manually would be painful to say the least, are there any tools that
assist with mass-orphaning?

Most software today is very much like an Egyptian pyramid with
millions of bricks piled on top of each other, with no structural
integrity, but just done by brute force and thousands of slaves.
