Orphaned packages in testing which were never in stable

There are a couple of orphaned packages in testing which were never
part of a stable release.  Since these packages are currently not
maintained the question arises whether we should release woody with
them.  A couple of them are needed by other packages (either because
of depends or build-depends).  However, quite a few could be removed
from testing easily.  Below is a listing of these.  If no one objects,
I will file serious bugs on them so they get removed from testing.
They will, however, stay in unstable.  After woody is released, we
should check what to do about these packages (either remove them
altogether, e.g. if upstream is dead, or find maintainers).

I confirmed that the following packages are not needed by other
packages not in this list (either through depends/recommends/suggests
or build-depends).  BTW, you can use "wnpp-disposable -v" in
/org/qa.debian.org/data/wnpp on auric (for main) and pandora (for
non-US) to get such a listing (Note that I removed some packages from
the listing by hand).

Someone is interested in adopting the following packages.  I pinged
them to see if they are still interested.  If I don't hear back from
them, I will probably request removal from testing (justification:
it's not clear whether the people will actually adopt the packages and
maintain them well and it's probably too late to upload updated
packages for woody anyway):
