Arch is yours. Whoever needs more and older releases on the system -
just do it yourself! In the past we said "use abs and AUR - Arch is
the base to make it your own".

I don't want to see users raising bugs that something doesn't work
with an older version of python. And I don't want to see these requests
pop up every now and then to add even more stuff in different versions.
It's sad enough we still have python2 and gtk2 around. To have gcc9
around and other duplicates is not what I want to see growing in Arch. 
I don't want to see our distribution transformed into another Debian.
