Just because we are dropping a pkg from the distro Does Not mean that
the pkg either needs to be or should be obsoleted.

Both mousepad and xfprint still work in mga3 and it should be up to the
user whether he wishes to remove them from his system.

I pushed for the removal of both apps from the mirrors, as they are
dead, upstream but I strongly object to the practice of adding Any
working application to task-obsolete.

My loathing is such that task-obsolete is the #1 on my urpmi skip.list.
