Yes, I 'parked' the control entry to old/ and commented out the lines in

You are talking to an old and long-time maintainer here.  I could do with a

It should be fine next round.  For which I will get back to you to finalize
Replaces / Breaks / Conflicts / ...

Thanks for looking over my shoulder :)
