Having to manually remove packages to update is not very ideal. ;( 

If these have completely gone away, perhaps you could obsolete them in
one of the core mate packages? 

Also, the comment in that bug with: 

"you may lose all your customizations by upgrading to 1.6" is a bit
troubling. Perhaps this shouldn't be pushed to a stable release?
