Well, I fine if those that are in a relative good shape stay. But
somebody probably should check which orphans are in a good shape and
which are not. Any volunteers? Shouldn't be to much work afaics.

But the biggest problem remains: What happens if a "good shape" orphan
needs a security fix during lifetime of FE5? **


** Well, a Security SIG is in the works afaics. But they can't maintain
all orphans forever. So we probably need to remove them sooner of later
from devel (e.g. in this case after branching for FE5) -- maybe this way
a new maintainer shows up...
