   Thanks for bringing this topic up, and thanks Dan for the roadmap for
these things.

Ok, added note, removed from distro, flagged.

Removed from distribution, flagged.

Thanks, removed from distro and flagged.

We can keep the code, but take it out of the build process, it is useful
to have code around for reference sometimes.
