Ah, Thomas - our ever so-gentle social commentator. :) For those who
aren't all that familiar with TAG discussions, "ain't nobody going away
mad" from this one; we're all friends here. Even though we can sometimes
growl and grumble at each other in the middle of a spirited exchange,
there's never any blood on the floor, and we're just as likely as not to
retire to the TAG lounge for beer and pretzels afterwards.

AFAIC, it's a dead letter already. There was never an overwhelming
reason for getting rid of it, nobody's adduced one, and I've seen
several people jump in fairly quickly to say that they do indeed use it;
ergo, it stays.
