Why not instead work with the pearfarm or pearhub people and use
their channels?

Description:
------------
PEAR has a problem: there are many unloved packages with few downloads
out there; that no longer have a place in PEAR. IE: SQL_Parser.

It's not nice to simply remove all of the releases, the package entry,
and the SVN information, pretending it was never there.

We also need a process to widely advertise the end of life *before* it
gets hit on the head.

1) I'd like to see a simple channel server set up somewhere; where we
can shift these dead packages.
2) As above, for SVN (or just SVN remove, its why we have svn revert).
3) I'd like to see enhanced tools to advertise this (like the
unmaintained flags)

    That too works for me - something simple; easy and fast; with an option
    to fix Super Stupidly Critical security bugs if needed.
