There is no automatic garbage collection during upgrades.Do we know of any distribution that handles it better?No idea, but maybe we could ship a "garbage-collector.7-1.fc7.rpm" in the repo that simply obsoletes all packages that aren't shipped anymore and don't get obsoleted by other packages.And what if such a package gets picked up by another repo?
It would need to provide a newer one (the obsoletes in the garbage collector rpm of course needs to be versioned).
But I'd say we shouldn't care to much about this corner case -- getting the old stuff away is more important IMHO. Further: it would be best for everyone if the maintainer of "another repo" would simply continue to maintain the package in Extras ;-)
