Orphaning: mtpfs (FUSE filesystem for MTP devices like Android tablets)

I've orphaned this package.  There are various
reasons for this:

(1) It's buggy: https://admin.fedoraproject.org/pkgdb/acls/bugs/mtpfs

(2) Upstream is not responsive.  The weight of developer effort seems
to have moved to several alternative projects, and it's probably
worthwhile adopting one of these and deprecating mtpfs.

(3) I don't use it any more.  I just gave up trying to get files off
Android tablets.  WTF don't they support USB mass storage like every
other thing out there?
