Well it can find the cruft, if you manage to wade through all the false
listings of stuff that is not truely cruft. Last time I ran it this took
hours afterwards. Also, it cannot recover as well from things like
postrm scripts that forget to unregister a file from alternatives, or
forget to put back diversions, postrm's that forget to remove dedicated
users, and stuff like that. A package that collected code to fix up
after broken postrm's could deal with not only cruft, but anything else
a postrm could forget to do, so it's more general.
