    Is there any easy way to figure out what's no longer in TL
    (removed at source) but is still installed locally - such as grnumalt,

Download tlpdb from the server and grep '^name ' | sort >/tmp/serverpkgs
Run the same grep|sort >/tmp/localpkgs on your local tlpdb.
Then run comm -3 /tmp/localpkgs /tmp/serverpkgs
The first column are packages appearing locally but not on the server.

Hope this helps,
