I've created 2 lists of changes to debathena-thirdparty that I think
incorporate most of the changes requested by various people over the
past month or so, plus a few of my own. Listed in the format I used

<group>, <name>, <package>, <comment> these are:


which is a fairly long list of packages to be removed, reflecting Jon's
request to remove underutilized packages, and geofft's suggestion for
cleaning up and updating the libboost packages.


a significantly shorter list of packages to be added, reflecting some things
which were overlooked in the initial setup and a few new ones.

I'd like to request that these changes be applied, subject to discussion at
next release-team meeting. We should also discuss recommendation issues in
debathena-thirdparty package as per tickets 372, 373, 374.
