Ah, I hadn't considered the case of older package versions. That could
potentially be an issue but hopefully we can just continue to ignore
this limitation of the ini file grammar/design.

I edited the mentioned setup.hints; I assume upset gets run on a cronjob
I also noticed however that of the existing packages in _obsolete there
seems to be no consensus as to whether the package directory itself is
moved to release/_obsolete or not. From the standpoint of end user it
shouldn't matter, but from the standpoint of ftp site tidyness should we
always physically move the files?
