     Umm, what about people that upgrade their systems and then realise
that they need to install the package?  Or, what about people that
deliberately wait until after they upgrade to install the package in
order to compile it against the new version of the compiler, libc,
etc.  I don't think the sendmail config files should be marked as
obsolete at all.
