Of course not. I'm not arguing that we shouldn't keep _all_ packages.
Sometimes it does make perfect sense to remove some of them.
But I must admit that I'm more in the "let's keep/fix them"
than in the "let's drop them" camp when it comes to orphaned packages.
Removals should be the absolutely last measure and used very carefully
and seldom, IMHO.
