I'm not sure what makes libid3tag show up as an orphan.  I have
ownership of it for rawhide and the stable Fedora branches.  It's
orphaned in EPEL 5, though I did push an update to EL-5 when a small
security bug was found last year.

At any rate, I have packages which depend on libid3tag still, so I
don't want to see it killed off just yet.  And if I need to toggle
some switches to keep that from happening, just let me know. :)
