Agreed.  Same votes from me.  And I already voted +1 to keeping it in the
tree, -0 to removing it.

Personally I just don't see what the big deal is.  People like having ab
in the tree as it's an easy way to compare the results of certain
configuration tradeoffs.  We should not force those people to go download
some other tool just because of a stupid version numbering disagreement.
Stick a big fat message on there saying as suggested, and leave it at
