The user that responded indicated that they'd like it available
still.  Given that the package will always be present in allpkgs for
those that really want it, removing it from the catalog still seems
like a good choice...that won't remove it from systems, it just
prevents new installations.

At the same time, running an EOL solaris with an EOL firefox really is
a weapon you should be allowed to hurt yourself with, so leaving it in
the catalog isn't a big deal either, I guess.
