IMHO, when we drop packages from our archive just because they are

IMO, we lose far more points when people install packages which are in
bad shape but haven't been removed because they don't have enough users
to notice & file RC bugs. We can O all day long, but that's
unproductive. I don't see how this proposal helps anything except
packages with active user bases or developers, and I can't see how the
proposal will add anything that can't already be done if you have active
users & developers.
