IMO, should anyone care about it, whether or not to remove from CVS 
depends on the reasons for not moving to 5.0.  If the modules don't 
make sense for furture releases then yes I think they should be.  If it 
is just the case that you no longer care to maintain it then I think 
the HEAD README.txt should be modified to say so and that a new 
maintainer is welcome to take on the task of conversion.
