    I know. I meant we should continue to support the drm-4.0 package.
    It's the usual song ... we shouldn't change interfaces or required tools
    in a stable series, and the least we can do is make 4.0 available
    somehow, because someone may rely on it.

    On the flip side, I don't care, and I suspect the people who actually
    are using DRM are on 4.1 now. Further, if _you_ are maintaining the
    cruft and it bothers _you_, then stop :)
