If we put them in a separate file, I think we can, for example,
automatically fill in the syspkg set name as well as the obsolete tag.
So obsoleting files would just be a matter of moving their names to a
separate file and just removing the extra cruft from those lines.
Also, keeping the main list without crap makes it easier to spot
things that could be deleted/simplified. I am currently using the
PLIST in pkgsrc for this purpose, for example.
