Update on orphaned packages with very low popcon numbers

Revisiting http://lists.debian.org/debian-qa/2006/09/msg00013.html .

Some have been ITAed or adopted and are removed from the list.  :-)
Others have been removed from Debian or removal requests filed (some by me)
and are likewise removed from the list.  :-)

It looks like we could use a Korean-speaking maintainer for hanterm-xf
and manpages-ko, and a Thai-speaking maintainer for xiterm+thai, and
a Finnish-speaking maintainer for manpages-fi.  I don't feel qualified to
determine whether these non-English packages are obsolete or not.

-- this should be expected to have low popcon counts.
   But if nobody cares enough to fix the bugs (I don't),
   removal should be requested: it is non-free, after all.
