from a mere Ubuntu process point of view, I think you've chosen the
wrong way to deal with this problem. The MOTU Council does not have any
business in removing packages from the archive.
	https://wiki.ubuntu.com/MOTU/Council#Responsibilities

The process for removing packages from the archive is explained here:
https://wiki.ubuntu.com/UbuntuDevelopment/PackageArchive#Removing%20Packages

At http://ftp-master.debian.org/removals.txt you can review a list of
packages that were removed from Debian and the reasons why. We usually
follow Debian's lead in terms of package removals and apply similar
rules, if we decide to remove packages in Ubuntu.


I personally feel that removing a package from the archive and offering
no replacement at all is a very drastic step. As you can see at
http://popcon.ubuntu.com/by_inst there's over 3000 people who installed
the package.

Also I feel that, while I to some degree understand your concerns, you
are 1) quite demanding, 2) not demonstrating that you explored any other
alternatives in solving the problem in a different way. So I'd like to
ask you:
 - How could this problem be solved differently?
 - Which role would you take in solving the problem?
