Compatibility packages are generally provided for specific reasons
including old packages which depend on them. So distributions would vary
on these, depending on which versions of software they ship if they ship
it at all in the first place.

It is not very useful to request a random old library without explaining
what benefit it provides. I am unlikely to be interested in doing this,
anyway.
