(Maintainers, if any, are in CC.)

Could you please merge:

https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/python2-imaging/ -> 
https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/python2-imaging-alt/ **
Reason: PIL is being phased out by pillow; 1st is orphan and 2nd one not 
to be replaced like in [community]
Maintainer: please add a replaces=() flag, it should replace 
python2-imaging and not python-imaging

https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/python2-socksipy-branch/ -> 
https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/python-socksipy-branch/ ** -> 
Reason: socksipy and -branch are dead, socks is maintained and has same API
Maintainer: please let me know if you'd like to maintain the new 
package/why we should keep a dead branch

And remove:

https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/sundials25/ **
Reason: sundials=2.5 current and available, package installs into /usr 
directly and should not be used

Unsure about:
https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/socksipy/ **
The original socksipy is last updated 2006 and known to have multiple 
issues that are fixed in the new fork, should we keep this? I tested the 
dependencies damnvid and polly, and both work with python2-socks

** I am not the maintainer of this package. Please consider giving them 
some time to respond. I'd be also very happy to orphan the new packages 
if they like to maintain them.
