Well, yes, but if it weren't important, we wouldn't have both versions

I would still prefer removing it after the branch (and not necessarily
worry about whether e.g. a rails update breaks it) but I'm not going
to argue any further.

Probably, you have a misunderstanding about the reason why currently
ruby-1.9.2 and 1.9.3 co-exist in pkgsrc.
If ruby-1.9.3 is ready in pkgsrc, there are no reason to keep 1.9.2.
