You are probably right.  However, removing a package should not be done

- adding a note about this to the release notes (Is there a package or
  pseudo-package for the release notes now? I don't think so).

- Inform the maintainers of alternatives.  Since polipo claims to be "in
  the spirit of wwwoffle", it might even be possible to provide an
  upgrade path.
