What activity is needed for psutils?  I have been using psutils for
years; I was glad to see it added to RHL back whenever that was.  Just
because something hasn't changed in a while doesn't mean it should be
dropped; AFAIK there is no other utility that does what psutils does.

Just because something hasn't changed doesn't mean it should be dropped
or moved to Extras.

As for a2ps, we also have GNU enscript (which does more I believe), so
a2ps could move to Extras.
