My remark was meant as a dark hint. I only wanted to point out that
members of the TeXLive don't have to sit there and hope that all
this evil packages are removed by their authors. They actively added
the packages to TeXLive and so they can actively remove them if this
makes them happy. 

(And I know that Reinhard is not issuing the opinions of the TeXLive
team. Nevertheless he should consider a bit the effects of his
postings on the "image" of the TeXLive team.)
