[aur-general] AUR4 migration of orphan packages

There are a lot of orphan packages that haven't been updated for months
or years, but still work fine and could be considered useful. I
understand that these packages will still be available even if nobody
port them. However I don't know if the current AUR helpers will be able
to see them or if they will be updated for this purpose.
If not, I would be happy to adopt some of these packages to do the
transition, even if I may disown most of them shortly after.

I suppose that adapting the tooling (if needed) would be a better
approach, but if they don't consider to do it I would find it sad to let
all these packages sink into oblivion.
