We really ought to fix tmpreaper then, it can be very dangerous to have any
race conditions in it.

At first glance, it looks like tmpreaper needs a resync it with its upstream
to pick up any bug fixes (https://fedorahosted.org/tmpwatch/).  Is there any
good reason to package a fork instead of working with upstream to merge any
functionality introduced in tmpreaper?

Paul?  What should be the fate of tmpreaper?  If you're not maintaining it
anymore, can you orphan it at least to make that clear?
