I'm sorry if this came across as suggesting that Kamil is in some way a major proponent of deletions; he's of course contributed a lot. My comment was meant to be about the broad NetBSD/pkgsrc ecosystem, where I have found myself over the last few years repeatedly questioning emails From a variety of people that propose deletions of various things. A large part of the issue is that our community has people that are particularly security conscious and tend to upgrade quickly, and also people that run (perhaps many) systems in production and tend to stay on older stable code for longer. Both approaches are reasonable, and my point is really that what some see as crufty are things that others still rely on.
