But it's only a symptom; it's like not wanting people to use umbrellas
because you don't like your hair to get wet.
Why do you even bother to look in the repository at all ?
If you there's a problem where files in the Attic don't behave the way you
want them to, then the problem is in the wrong behavior, not in the fact
that the files are in the Attic (maybe fixing the problem will end up
moving the files out of the Attic indeed, but it's still only a symptom).
