I propose that a2ps and its associated psutils is orphaned ... there has been 
no activity by the originator/maintainer since 2000.  The associated mailing 
list has had little traffic other than spam in years.

HOWEVER,  I would also propose keeping it in Core since it serves a very 
useful basic function of pretty-printing many forms of source code files.  
Nevertheless, I would also agree that it should be moved to Extras when that 
is more operational.

I, personally, would not be willing to step up to maintenance although someone 
else may be willing ... locale support is missing.
