No, this only happened, since I asked publically on this list for it's
removal. Otherwise if the concept described here would have been in use,
the package would have been purged.

Because for example silo is the only way to boot sparc and we don't want
to loose that functionality? And I think that currenlty or in the future
also other important packages like that may appear in the wnpp list and
having the concept with automatical removal, we will loose this
packages, which is not acceptable. And having one or two people taking
care of those packages should be not hard to find.
