As a matter of record we removed softdep from the kernel configs months ago,
and it was generally known that it was going to be removed.

I don't see how that can be true, at least with the statement taken at face
value. Also in case it's not known to all, you can downgrade a log file
system to softdep or vanilla. I have been switching between all three

Anyway, this is why we have formal releases. 5.0 will ship with both
technologies. It will allow logging to mature further and also give people
a chance to evaluate it before they commit to it.
