I believe someone (Daniel Diniz, maybe?) did do a pass over those some
time in the  last 12 months, so most of the obviously irrelevant ones
that are that old should already be gone. Not to say it isn't worth
doing another pass, just saying not to get disheartened if there aren't
many that can be readily closed.

There are at least a few still kicking around just because they're
difficult to deal with (there's an ancient one to do with one of the
ways circular imports can fail that I occasionally go back and reread
before moving on to something more tractable).
