I think you should promote the "upgrade to the latest version" approach
and not put too much effort into which old versions of packages work
with old versions of R. The depends information which is in a package
will already give people a pretty good clue if they are really desperate
for a package that is no longer being maintained.  My concern was mainly
because I did not at first realize that you already had a mechanism for
moving packages to "old."
