Package: wnpp
Severity: normal

I intend to orphan the icicles package, mainly due to the apparition of
more suitable replacements, like for instance helm.

The package description is:
 Icicles lets you do the following:
  * cycle through completion candidates that match your current
  * use a pattern to match completion candidates, including:
      - regexp matching (including substring).
      - fuzzy matching.
      - prefix matching (as in vanilla Emacs).
      - command abbreviation matching.
  * use multiple regexps to match candidates, chaining these filters
    together like piped 'grep' commands.
  * see all possible complete inputs (pertinent commands, variables,
    and so on) that match your partial or regexp input: the list is
    updated dynamically (incrementally) if you change your input.
  * see all previous inputs that match your partial or regexp input,
    and selectively reuse them.
  * match input against completion candidates that do not match a
    given regexp; that is, complement the set of matches and use the
    result for subsequent matching.
  * use multiple regexps to search (and replace) text across
    multiple buffers, files, or regions.
  * search areas of text that have a certain text property, such as
    a face.
  * browse Imenu or tags entries that match your partial or regexp
  * create and use multiple-choice menus; that is, menus where you
    can choose multiple entries any number of times.
  * create and use multi-commands so you can perform an action on
    any number of candidate inputs any number of times.
  * perform set operations (intersection, union, etc) on the fly,
    using sets of completion candidates or other strings.
  * persistently save and later reuse sets of completion candidates
    (e.g. project file names).
  * complete input piecewise, against multiple completion
    candidates, in parallel.
  * complete key sequences, and navigate the key-binding hierarchy
    (this includes the menu bar menu hierarchy) (see also LaCarte)
  * sort completion candidates on the fly, in multiple,
    context-dependent ways.
