I mean, the same thing could happen as would happen in nature; the
inessential bits would either keep up thanks to good design or people
thinking about keeping them up, or whither and die because no one needed
them.  I don't think the mere presence of the "extra" stuff is a burden,
and if this is set up as a separate project, perhaps we can find projects
that care about those areas to have CVS commit rights.
