explain to me.. how exactly you "disable" a package in a coherent way.
An annoucement isn't going to cut it. We have no toolized way at all
to tell people about a "lack of update" on each client computer
pulling packages from extras and no way to proactively "expire" a
package so that client tools suggest people remove the package from
their system because there is no more updates coming. rpm itself has
no concept of "expiration"
