Great that you do it :)

It is on my list to go through all packages that are not in sarge and
have an RC-bug w/o appropriate activity, and compile a list of packages
for removal.

Of course, one should warn the maintainers appropriate, and perhaps
orphan in some cases (and/or do a MIA-check for some other cases).
