At least in this particular case, I don't think, the removal is warranted.
The public distfiles disappeared not because of a deliberate action by
the developer or copyright-holder, but simply because the entire
ftp.cwi.nl is now gone. Sites continue to host the file -- we should
allow CWI.net to sort things out with their FTP-server (or, perhaps,
they intend to offer the same code over HTTP later).
