It makes sense on a pure Debian machine (or at least with maintained 
external repositories), because packages that are not in any archive 
also don't get (security) upgrades ;)

Even on my sid machine I only have one orphaned package, which I can't 
remove because it is depended on, but since it's marked auto-installed I 
don't even have to worry about it, aptitude will deal with it as needed.
