Is that really appropriate? To unleash a package in a repository that
will remove functionality from a client system? What happens to user
who were relying on that functionality?
Its one thing to obsolete because of a package name change where the
new package provides similar functionality. Its quite another when
obsoleting is used in a blank payload package to delibrately remove
another package without actually providing similar functionality.
