We could have demoted it to proposed and held it out with a blocking
bug, approximating the "unstable only" situation in Debian.  But I
guess removing and blacklisting doesn't hurt my feelings either. My
general gut feeling to any developer saying "this software isn't
good enough to be in a stable release" is "then it's not good enough
to be installed".  There will always be one person who installs and
never upgrades, after all.
