Easy removals: G
This doesn't strictly fall into tthe scope of this mail,
but gauche has a nasty security bug open for over a month,
and it's not too hard to kick it and all its reverse depends out:
remove gauche/0.8.6-1 wiliki/0.5.3-1 scmail/1.3-2 gauche-gl/0.4.1-1 gauche-gtk/0.4.1-4
# 334221, 334407

remove gforge/3.1-31 gforge-theme-starterpack/3.1-1
# 362630 -- orphaned
# 357885 -- it's not clear whether this affects etch actually
# 350139 -- doesn't directly affect etch, but the FTBFS probably is
# present in etch, and the package has recursive dependency disease anyway
# another "almost leaf". Yes, I am getting too aggressive.
remove gnus/5.11+v0.4.dfsg-1 ifile-gnus-el/0.3.5-2
# 363277 -- another bug which probably applies to etch, but not 100% sure
