FreeBSD port x11-fm/x-files

we (tcltk at FreeBSD) are planning to remove Tcl/Tk 8.3 from the ports
tree. A port that you maintain, x11-fm/x-files, depends on it, and
migrating it to Tcl/Tk 8.4 doesn't seem a triviail job.
Moreover, I see that the project's homepage [1] doesn't exist anymore.
In fact, the source files aren't fetchable but from our mirrors.

This said, I propose to plan the removal x-files from the FreeBSD ports
tree, with tentative deletion date 2013-02-01.

What are your thoughts?
