Seems like an answer might be to have a "check-retired" command. When packages
are removed from the repo, they are moved to an area where the retired packages
live. Meta-data is built from that directory so there are no typos.
Check-retired would not automatically delete packages just like update doesn't
automatically update packages. It should print the list for approval and proceed
only if the user tells it to.
