Here's an alternative idea:

* Move the repository information into the overlays themselves. Require
  overlays to provide a file containing the description, homepage,
  owner information etc.

* After a certain amount of time, switch new versions of layman to use a
  new file that's generated from these. Any overlay that doesn't
  contain such a file is clearly unmaintained and should no longer be

* Also use this opportunity to clean up the repo_name vs layman name
  mess: any repository that gets it wrong should not be included in the
  new layman file.

Sounds like a perfect opportunity to make sure that everything in
layman's still actively maintained and developed.
