Some of these should be saved:

 * app-admin/drush is the last version of drush that works with
   Drupal-7.x (still supported upstream) and doesn't bundle a thousand
   dependencies. I've been patching it to avoid warnings with newer
   versions of PHP.

 * dev-php/PEAR-{Auth_SASL,Crypt_GPG,Mail_Mime,Net_IDNA2,Net_Sieve,
   are all used by Roundcube. Our ebuilds for mail-client/roundcube
   bundle them right now, but they can be unbundled (just rm -r
   the bundled copies). Afterwards these will have revdeps again.

That subset should be relatively bug-free -- one of the authors of
Roundcube maintains the PEAR packages that it needs. The rest are
indeed obsolete AFAIK though.
