If UNACCEPT has only been used once per year then that's one added epoch
per year from now on. While glibc is not a package I'd really like to
see an epoch on, the fact is that there are nearly 2000 binary packages
in the archive with an epoch, so any more added due to the loss of
UNACCEPT is a drop in the bucket.

Are you counting the time we almost removed all of d-i from the archive
by accident and put it back before dinstall as an UNACCEPT? :-)
