An example of such a package is glibc (bug#382175). I don't think that
removing SUNRPC support (and with it NIS, NFS and more) is a suitable
choice (unless we want to lose all users who haven't switched yet to

The bug being more than 60 days old, does it mean that we have to move
glibc to non-free (and with it, half of the archive to contrib)? It
would be faster to move everything to non-free.
