I was pursuaded[1] to keep some unworthy packages in the AUR, and the
thread was inconclusive (may be my final email was too long)...

To summarise the contents of that thread: for a group of related
packages, the stable versions are not likely to work for anyone and the
VCS versions (*-bzr) are more sensible, but someone might adopt the
stable ones, so we'll keep them lying around, at the risk of confusing
users who install them by mistake to satisfy dependencies or the -bzr

What has changed since then is that now, users are indeed confused and
no one has adopted the non-bzr pacakges so please would a hard working
TU transfer any votes to the -bzr versions and delete as follows:
