I intend to file a new round of removal requests from testing for
packages that were not part of etch and are orphaned:

bcm5700-source - #494707
chdrv - #503522
darksnow - #497141
ikvm - #466336
libvisual-projectm - #494502
nautilus-share - #501938
php-openid - #501946
qtparted - #482400
sparkline-php - #483252
xar - #446003

Except for qtparted the popcon numbers are all pretty low.

Joey had concerns against the removal of sparkline-php in July. Popcon
lists 5 installations, so I'd propose to remove it. Joey?
