Absolutely right. My point, however, was that the rashed removal makes that
hypothetical next person's job more difficult.
No, not impossible -- getting stuff out from the Attic is doable. But more
difficult (possibly involving contacting repo-meisters, etc.) -- we have the
EXPIRATION_DATE setting for a reason.
Any claims of license violations -- which, according to Mark, lead to the
hasty removal -- should've been addressed by using FORBIDDEN/IGNORE instead.
Not much can be done /now/ -- the reason I'm making these noises is to prevent
another disorderly deorbiting of a port in the future.
