IMO there is no reason to keep these old versions, as nothing in the
distro depends on them.  So if there are no objections, we can just
outright remove them, and use _obsolete packages only for tcl-db*.*.

Something is wrong with these packages; the libdb* and tcl-db* packages
aren't versioned.  (BTW, I think the tcl-db4.5 should also be an
_obsolete package, pointing to tcl-db4.8.)

That will be helpful.

These look good.

Thank you for your prompt attention to this.   Since space on /home is
tight, I have copied the ming and WordNet into a staging area until
we're ready for the move.
