Reliability of deborphan?

Hey all

I've stumbled across references to "deborphan" to help maintain my system. I've installed it and read the man so think that I have a reasonable basic knowledge for what it is meant to do, so have run deborphan -zs and have been given a list of files. In theory, I should be able to zap these to recycle the electrons and save space. But ... how reliable is deborphan in identifying truly-orphaned-safe-to-delete files ?

Any body have experience to share?
