what i'd like to see is a system, to which one would give a package name, 
which then handles the removal (almost) automatically.

that way devs would have an easier time actually removing some cruft and 
you guys would be freed from typing the same stuff over and over.
this system could be responsible for sending the out last rites mails, 
masking the packages in package.mask etc... enrico would get his database 
for free, both listing those that are pending removal as well as a 
history of removals including the reason plus a pointer to the 
corresponding bug...

don't know if that is what you are aiming at, but currently the process of 
removing a package is a true chore and i admire your dedication to it. (a 
big THANKS btw)
