Or the port might become useful/essential/critical to somebody in the future...
What is not broken -- just old, like databases/db2 or www/apache13*, for
example -- should be left alone (until it becomes both broken and unmaintained).
And even then, the removal should not be mass-scale/automatic...
Maybe, for cleanliness and neatness, we should have a separate directory (and
category): "obsolete" -- where ports can go to die peacefully. But it should not
be cvs' "Attic"...
