Just because a software is old it doesn't mean that it doesn't work or
isn't used anymore.

Well, I must admit that I don't know tcsh, but that's only one of them.

Like I said, I had no problem with really unimportant or unnecessary
packages or with packages which don't run anymore without being patched.

But packages which still run like eboard and are just a bit older don't
need to be actively maintained. So I don't know the problem with
keeping them in [extra] as orphans.
