Actually, all entries still apply, because there were deprecated with
Etch but still available in Etch !

Since we cannot ask users using deprecated packages in Etch (maybe at a
first Debian install) to first read the etch release-notes, I think we
should add back all these entries..

Not dummy packages available in etch but not in lenny:
- apache 1.3: http://packages.debian.org/search?keywords=apache
- bind 8: http://packages.debian.org/search?keywords=bind
- php4: http://packages.debian.org/search?keywords=php4
- postgresql 7.5.22: http://packages.debian.org/search?keywords=postgresql
- exim3: http://packages.debian.org/etch/exim

Etch: http://debian.org/releases/etch/i386/release-notes/ch-upgrading.en.html#s-deprecated
Lenny: http://debian.org/releases/lenny/i386/release-notes/ch-upgrading.en.html#deprecated
