There seems to be many like allout that don't receive a commit for
decades (apart from a typo fix or two). AFAICT most go to new additions.
Stefan K seems to do a lot of thankless housekeeping in that direction,
but more importantly there was the force of nature from Lars before you
ahem frustrated him away, so my criticism mostly applies to from then on;
by all means if we can get Lars back to fixing the million line
interdependent Elisp code, I'll grunt no more.  The way I see it options
are immediately to stop anything else and to hold communions and pray to
get him back, or just start downsizing.
