Just remove it and upload the new package, people can figure for
themselves. I wouldn't want to have my application to be replaced
automatically, nor do I want to have an install message for each and
every package that is removed from the repos, or even moved between
repos if you go that way.
Users should know what they are doing, if they are happy with it they
continue to use it, if not, they already found an alternative
