twinkle: Intent to retire

I'm the current Fedora maintainer of the twinkle package.

Sadly, it's in poor shape: 

- Segfaults on start in recent fedora versions (depending on config). 
- Has not had an upstream release in 4+ years. 
- Has not had any response from upstream maintainer in at least that
- Uses Qt3 and a complex stack of c++ libraries. 
- 8 open bugs:

Debian removed it last year, Arch moved it to a user repo instead of
the main repo last year. 

So, I am going to retire this package in rawhide soon unless there's
folks with a very strong C++ background wishing to fix issues and
basically become the new upstream.
