Those themes aren't the themes you're thinking of -- xfce4-themes are 
old pre-icon-theme-spec private Xfce icon themes that the panel used to 
use, and they're obsolete now.

Otherwise we just have gtk-xfce-engine-2, which I think should remain in 
the main repo, and xfwm4-themes, which doesn't really need its own repo. 
  If you're suggesting breaking each theme into its own module, I think 
that's too much work (for Olivier, mainly) without really any gain.

Oh, I had thought this one had never been ported to the 4.4 panel.  My 
mistake; looks like you're right.  Goodies it is.

Good call, though we should ask the maintainers of those what they want 
to do with them, if they're still reachable.

Sure, if those are no longer maintained and/or aren't ported to the new 
panel, they can be moved to -obsolete.

I'm actually thinking of using -archive instead... -obsolete sounds a 
bit final and painful ^_~.
