I did a massive clean-up of users who didn't do ANYTHING (no post, no
project membership, no nothing) a few years ago.  I think I ditched
15000 accounts at that time, and some people complained that they
"reserved their username" on Savannah.

Not much value besides easying my work on Savane->Savane-python
migration scripts at that time.
