One of the reasons I think it would be useful to have warnings is that there
are other ways in which DDs may be constantly contributing (e.g.,
contributing regularly to a package VCS), without *realizing* that they
haven't done an upload in x years; so perhaps they haven't needed to do any
uploads in that time, but aren't idle and shouldn't be idled out without
