I’m definitely guilty of asking for things to be removed, but in the case of my suggestions, it’s because their presence were actual impediments to progress (e.g. keeping round the Token Ring and FDDI code, which no one had apparently used in many years, was impeding progress on network stack improvements).

I’m all for keeping old stuff around.
