I agree that proper support for none modified boards is far better and I
am always for having such support in tree. what i am failing to
understand here is why it is so important to remove this support or
none-support patch from the tree ? in general our stance was that if
there is at least one user we'll try to carry the functionality as long
as we can. So why not remove this when a better replacement is in place ?
