If I understand your proposal correctly, the primary change is to segregate 
packages that have never been looked at and packages that were advocated at 
some point from packages that have been reviewed, but have never had an 
advocate.  Is that right?

I can see some potential for benifit with this.  It does sound like you are 
proposing a manual step of marking a package off the "New" list.  I think 
this should be automatic.

On a related note, can REVU be subcribed to -changes and taught to auto 
archive packages after upload?
