I've been considering dropping etoys for a number of releases, the
maintainer has been asked to migrate away from the long deprecated
sugar-presence-service for years and still hasn't. I've not seen, at
least announced on the standard sugar lists, a new version of it for
quite some time. I think it's time to drop it.
