But by 'hidden' it also deletes all comments and votes, and stops people
being able to search for the package, see that it isn't maintained and
picking it up. Almost all of my packages have become mine by trying to
install something, finding it useful, and when it became an orphan, just
taking it over and fixing it up.

If we wanted to delete packages we would have asked for deletion, not
orphaned it. What is the point of orphaning packages if they are just going
to get deleted anyway?
