*sigh* I think we have people able to handle such complex changes.

this is not what it's about. I don't care how it's called or if scripts
will need to be changed. What I want to know is if either:
a) we're reducing functionality of something in order to support more *real*
use cases with the same code, making it more generic;
or
b) we're reducing functionality based in theorical use cases.

if it's (a), you get my ACK
