Dear babeld users on OpenWRT/LEDE,

Starting from babeld 1.5.1, the UCI format for configuring babeld on
OpenWRT had changed to be more consistent with upstream babeld (use the
same option names, and a few other changes).

At the time, I had ensured backward compatibility, see:


Since we are now at babeld 1.8 and a stable release of LEDE is nearing,
I would like to remove this compatibility code.  It would make the babeld
init script more readable and less confusing.  Quoting the Zen of Python:

    « There should be one-- and preferably only one --obvious way to do it. »

If I hear no objection by the beginning of next week, I will go ahead with
the cleanup.  Please yell if you still need the old syntax.
