I guess it just takes a long time to realize that you haven't been doing 
something and that, even though you try to convince yourself that you 
might, you just aren't likely to start doing it again.  I think that 
package maintainer's query was at least six months ago; when I responded 
I thought there might be a chance that I'd get heavily involved again, 
but that doesn't seem to have materialized.  Thus, it seems that it is 
time to admit that I probably won't soon be as involved as I once was.

Yeah, sorry, forgot about that one (the source wasn't on the machine 
that I was using to get my list, so I missed it).  New list of packages 
I can keep:

* tnef
* wget
* xmon
* xterm
