I guess you have a configured indicator with your location, right? ;-)

- The current bug makes impossible to configure it/add a location, so 
it's basically useless as a new package to install (or you need to get 
the woeid code and tweak the config by hand, but if you do that you can 
probably as well get the package from a ppa or launchpad library).

- The users who have it installed can keep it, nothing is going to 
remove it from your system because we drop it from the archive.

Seeing the number of reports on, quite some users try 
to installed it and ran into the breakage, I think it's less confusing 
to just not mark as available something that can't be used in "normal 

What do you think?
