Hi Emmanuel,

Given its low popcon I think this package is only used to complete
dependencies on another packages or at least that is how I used jboss4
packages in the past.

Raising the severity of #465596 is good option, but if by
removing it, only those outdated jboss libraries are affected
maybe it's time to remove them as well.
