Sarge->Etch: which obsolete packages can be removed?

I've had a debian machine running for a number of years and I've upgraded 
from woody->sarge->etch.

Looking at the listing in aptitude there are a lot of "obsolete" packages - 
such as gcc-2.95, gcc-3.0, python-2.1, ipchains, libdb2, libnewt0, 
libreadline3, slang1.  I assume its safe to remove old versions of gcc and 
ipchains.  What about the other ones?  Am I likely to break things by 
removing ALL of these packages?  Could it wreck locally compiled packages 
(of which there are not many)?
