Ok... I guess, what we can do is simply to obsolete mlcscope.  I'd
create an empty new package and tweak the setup.hint file to require
cscope.  After that it would be nice if you could just create a short
announcement that mlcscope has been replaced by cscope and mlcscope
gets discontinued.

Does that make sense?
