Guys, no ports are going to be get remove when they have dead projects or  
else. If these ports work correct, fetchable and not vulnerability, then  
there is no reason to remove. Just don't touch these ports, and these  
ports aren't going to bother and bite you. The BROKEN and pointyhat will  
tell you when those ports are ready to get remove. Therefore, please use  
your time on something else to make yourself more useful.
