I just meant that if we encourage to post seconds (which are in fact
just a form of review of the intention to orphan) on a list such as -qa
(which is more specific-purpose than, say, -devel), we might end up
attracting there people who have an interest in doing this sort of
package quality review. That sounds like a useful side-effect to me. But
I'm still unsure about the benefits of the seconds principle, though.
