Only that I had a hard time understanding what you were talking about
removing. :-)  I was worried that you meant you wanted to remove all source
packages that have new upstream versions available and have not been
uploaded since 2009...  evidently that is not what you have in mind!

I agree, dropping binaries from old source versions so that we can prune the
sources is a good idea.
