Aren't you missing some reverse-deps here?
bzed@think:~$ apt-cache rdepends roxen4 | grep libroxen | wc -l

As there's no roxen3 in the archive, it wouldn't make sense to keep them
in the archive - removing them would also clean up the insane mess -
having a package for every plugin is just crazy especially since a lot
of the packages contain only one file. Imho it would be a good thing to
clean this up.
