I'm the xfce4 extra maintainer and from my experience the xfce4 stuff
goes in waves. Whe the development at upstream gets upt o speed again
for 4.6 ther will be people that who want the 4.6 svn packages until
there are beta tarballs available. I know have them lingering around is
an annoyance but believe me, someone will come along and pick them up.
It is okay to mve it to unsupported for the moment but please don't get
rid of them as it will be way much work for whoever to recreate them.
