Perhaps we need an intermediate directory, called "deprecated". Not
obsolete, should probably still autoload -- putting defadvice into
obsolete will break some packages for this reason alone, but should
produce warnings.

The intention would be that "deprecated" packages would move to
"obsolete" there after.
