My eyes can usually cope with WML, but if not, I tell w3m it's HTML.
I don't see any problems in the patch.

I could understand if deborphan was a QA tool ("what dependent
packages would be in trouble if we RM-ed this parent library"), but
instead it uses "orphans" in the vague sense of "leftovers"; and then
it expects me to react to the discovery of such a pitiable foundling
by wanting to purge it. Oops, I'm back to using this mailinglist as
if it was called debian-justinmoaningaboutpackagenames.
