Bug#173740: please remove non-free epan package from unstable

Package: epan
Version: unavailable; reported 2002-12-19
Severity: normal

Scanning the wnpp list, I see that this non-free package has been orphaned
for 348 days and has had a bug open against it for going on four years.
It's i386 only, uses ugly widgets, has font problems that cause text
artifacts on my machine, and its functionality is largely superseded by
the much more flexible ethereal.  The only feature epan has which ethereal
appears to lack is a simple display of traffic statistics that should be
easily reimplementable by ethereal upstream if demand arises.  I therefore
believe this package is a candidate for removal from the archive.
