But I don't think thas worked as you might have expected, and it's not
really gone yet. While the dak rm works, there is no point release
mechanism for wheezy (LTS) and you still will find
libnet-ping-external-perl in the archive (and on the mirrors), as
there was not the usual procedure of removing the package, making a
new release, and pushing out the updates to the mirrors.
