I don't think you should only focus on that particular use case. There may
be other problems that could be solved by a more generic approach.

What I'm thinking about is having a "last maintainer" field that would be
displayed and searchable for orphans packages. It would not only allow to
easily find all packages that were belonging to a specific user but would
also give an easy way to reach the last maintainer of an orphan package to
get extra informations before adopting it.

This is just a random thought and may be pointless... What is your opinion
on this?
