By default, KMail in FC3 only supports OpenPGP through built-in GPGME
and external GnuPG.

How would we obsolete the cryptplug package?

For KMail, which has been our only cryptplug user, it would work to
make a gpgme update "Obsoletes: cryptplug". E.g. the gpgme and gnupg
packages in the fedora.us queue is built with OpenPGP and S/MIME
support. But it would not be entirely correct, since gpgme >= 0.4.5
is not a direct successor of cryptplug.

We've discussed opportunity for meta-packages a long time ago, but
never implemented them. Where a package is not moved from Extras into
Core, we need ways to obsolete "old cruft" ourselves. One way to
achieve that in an upgrade would be to create and main a meta package
like "fedora-extras-release-3".

Thoughts anyone?
