I agree. It's been orphaned for four months and nobody's stepped forward
to fix it either in Debian or upstream. We can always reintroduce it if
somebody does, but until then we're better off without it.
Note that 'deja' in the surfraw package appears to work, and at least
provides dejasearch's basic functionality.
