It's not a simply a more up-to-date package. The source repo is the same
but gtk3-classic is essentially a forked gtk3-mushrooms which adds
experimental/developmental (?) aspects to the PKGBUILD which the
original does not (e.g. use of meson and quilt, see e.g. [1]).

Also, technically the gtk3-mushrooms package is not out-of-date as the
upstream is still at 3.24.11.

If all of this is potentially too confusing let me update the PKGBUILD
to use a different source rather than having the package deleted.
