Actually I brought it up as soon as I found the EOL was a deadline for
breaking pkg_* tools, was told, "too late now" - that was more than 2
weeks ago, less than 2 months ago (forget the date) ... I'm happy with
an EOL and working to upgrade everything, I'm not happy that the EOL was
not actually an EOL and it was actually a deadline.
