Actually, deleting broken software from the repositories fixes all
sorts of bugs. Look at the bug reports closed in January:

If something is badly broken and unlikely to be fixed soon, it should
be removed. It can always be added back later. The question is how
badly broken is CCSM? I don't want to recommend CCSM to my friends and
I do wish it were used a lot less because it does have issues. Does it
have to be removed from the normal repositories to be used less and
recommended less? I don't know...
