Maybe we should intense the plan to automatically scan the TER and set 
extension to "obsolete" after grace period and of course mail the authors.

E.g. there authors could be notified after each beta and RC release and the 
we could set the max version flag around release.

Trouble arises for all extensions that still need to support older versions 
and use conditions to only call certain functions in old releases.
