I'm sorry, but this is BOGUS!  I want to see a 2.0 release, but adding
code that is wrong just so that we can get a GA release is NOT the way
to go about doing that.  The whole point of Open Source is that we don't
have to cut corners just to meet release dates.  Do it right, it will
take less time in the long run.

I am really disappointed that the attitude on this list right now is
"ship it soon regardless of quality or maintainability."

It has some serious performance implications to remove that function,
although both Bill and I started by saying that the function was
completely bogus.
