I think the solution might be to have a process where libraries that sit
unmaintained for some period of time can be adopted by someone else.
(Not that people necessarily want to do maintain someone's library, but
if someone using the library is applying patches on their local copy
anyway, maybe they'd like to be the maintainer.)
