[arch-dev-public] dropping FreeNX/OpenNX and nx-common

I'd like to drop FreeNX from our extra repo. It's not maintained for
several years now though it can still do its job pretty well with
some heavy patching and sed commands fixing things that have changed

We've already dropped the closed NoMachine NX client and I'd like to
drop OpenNX along with FreeNX because there's a successor out there
named X2go.

X2go packages are in extra: a functional replacement with the same and
better features. And it's well maintained upstream.

nx-common pkg with remaining NoMachine libs is only required by FreeNX
and OpenNX and can be removed too then.

Any objections or somebody who wants to take over these packages?
