Yeah, I remove packages often when they are orphaned _and_ flagged
out-of-date for long _and_ on request.

There have to be someone updating or patching such a package but in
fact, there haven't been one, for long, and we donno even if anyone is
still using it, that's the enough reason for at least me to delete it.

If anyone would pick it up, they could still add it back and it's not
hard, thanks to the simplicity of pacman.
