I'm not saying it shouldn't be deleted when it doesn't work, I'm saying
that its removal is far too early. It's deprecation and removal should
have been aligned with the package tools so that people could see it

If you deliberately set out to minimise the chances of portmanager's
survival this is the optimal way of doing it.
