} I'd like to get rid of some of the Xen packages (xen41 and xen45 at last),
} but after the freeze, with appropriate warning in the 2016Q4 release
} notes.

     You could do xen41 and xen42.  But, I think it is too soon
remove xen45.  The latest version we have in pkgsrc is xen46.
xen45 isn't that far behind and it wouldn't be totally unreasonable
for people to be still using it.
