When we are removing a package from svn because it is no more wanted on
the repository, we usually do "svn rm". However it makes it more
difficult to see old packages, or see it existed if we want to reimport
it. So I think it would be better to move it to an other directory.

Packages are currently in this directory :
With binary files in :

And I think we could create this one to move removed packages :
And the same for binrepos :

mgarepo can have a command to remove a package, and move it to the
obsoletes directory on both repositories (as suggested in bug #318).

What do you think ?
