I've only begun the awol procedure for gnome-applet-sensors, but if aaron has 
other packages that are being neglected too, you can request them to be 
orphaned by FESco, riding along on this awol procedure.

About gnome-applet-netspeed, of it becomes available, go ahead and take it, 
however I must say I don't like you writing: "if upstream turns out to be dead, 
as it seems now, I'll retire it.", that seems like a bad policy to me. I 
maintain many packages where upstream is dead. As long as users find them 
usefull and they don't break left and right because of dependency changes, why 
abandon them?
