Another option which has been proposed in the past is to remove
orphaned packages from testing. Here one could be really aggressive
without too much woe (1 month?), since the packages will remain in
unstable for a bit. Only, a case-by-case decision would be needed when
there are depending packages involved...
What do you think, would it be worthy?
