Re: Fwd: Status and future of 3rd party ABI compatibility layer

With modules now basically working we should either retire or move
some of these items to pkgsrc so that the interested parties maintain them.
An awful lot of the compat stuff is now very compartmentalised, with not
much more work to do.

These two are strange and very broken, i.e. internally they are in
very bad shape.  I vote to delete.  The version control history will still
be there.  Can't see strong use cases for either.

These ones are fairly simple.  I see a point to FreeBSD because we have one
tool that it supports (we should have picked the Linux version instead
but whatever).

The emulation is very incomplete.  A nice mental excercise for sure but 
in the current form I can't see a good use case.
