There will be but there isn't yet.  I'm testing and working out bugs in
a large packagedb update now.  It has support for retiring packages.
We'll probably have to write some new supporting scripts to go along
with that (to push retired package information from packagedb into koji,
maybe to do the dead.package stuff from the packagedb rather than
manually by the maintainer, etc).
