Removal from the main archive isn't automatic, and assuming no serious
kernel or toolchain breakage, I guess there's no reason for such removal
to be hasty.
On the other hand, place in -ports (aka second-class architectures) isn't
automatic either, and relies on someone doing the work.

Security support and stable release.
A MAP07 (Dead Simple) raspberry tincture recipe: 0.5l 95% alcohol, 1kg
raspberries, 0.4kg sugar; put into a big jar for 1 month. Filter out and
throw away the fruits (can dump them into a cake, etc), let the drink age
at least 3-6 months.
