Maintainer ping?

Given the problems that we seem to have with maintainers going absent
would it make sense to send out a periodic ping every M days to all
maintainers?  Then if we didn't receive an answer within N pings the
package could be marked orphaned automatically.

The only thing to work out in the above scenario is M and N.
