I have to agree with Thomas, it seems silly to remove fully functional 
plugins that users (probably) like and use just because the status of 
the author/maintainer is unknown.

IMO, it'd make more sense to only remove them if they have some critical 
unfixed bug that no on will step up to fix, or if they become obsoleted 
by other plugins (like GeanyGDB).
