Wouldn't this push more work towards the AUR maintainers though? What
actually happens when someone requests a package is to be orphaned?
Can the package maintainer "un-request" it by doing something?

I guess I just assumed (like the ML previously) that a bunch of people
would get an email with the request in it - which nobody really wants
to see!
Definitely agree on the comment+checkbox idea being a bad one. As you
said, everyone's problem would demand attention.
