10 Trying to depclean it gives a warn, which is a simple form to check it;
11 we could probably optimize this if it needs to run faster. Or we have
12 some separate script generate an online list (like our rev deps) to
13 quickly check it up with; could go a step further, one can set up a
14 tool to ensure the bugs get set accordingly.
16 For example; see security's GLSA bug bot, which is much more complex.
