Marking packages deprecated

There should be a way to mark a package as deprecated so it doesn't show up on the main Hackage listing.
If a newer package, with the same name, is uploaded then the older packages will in effect be defunct. But if you don't have a newer package with the same name, there is currently no way to "get rid of" packages that are no longer valid. There may be several reasons for why you would want to do this, likely most often because the contents of the package are superceded by functionality in some other package, with a different name.
