  * Marking packages deprecated
  Fixes ticket no. 261 as discussed in its annotations.  Packages with
"deprecated" "true" are excluded from the package list.  Packages with
"superseded by" tags provide links to their superseding packages in the
package page.

The next bit is in making it easier for maintainers to set this data.
