I'd vote for removing the whole binfilter code and not only the export
part. As discussed many times before, those who still have a need to
import binary documents can always use one of the existing OOo releases
as a converter to ODF.

Just let's start with a code base as clean as possible. This seems to be
the perfect point in time for me to make some real decisions and to not
make compromises from the beginning on.
