FWIW we are currently having the same discussion for the Heimdal packages.


I think these old binaries could make the entire source package and all binary packages it builds look bad, if for example somebody discovers a serious security issue. Which is very possible, as I don't think anyone is really interested in the source code any more.

So I vote that this stuff should be removed.
