I have now read all the discussion about this, but still I have not got
the sense behind removing these modules at all. What is so bad with
keeping them in the sources? Why do you all care that much for removing
two modules which were not modified for years, so make practically zero
work with maintainance? It cant be the 5kb compressed size of them, or?
