No.

Guys. Really.

Any version numbering change is *not* an excuse to drop any old stuff,
or do anything new and exciting.

If the IDE maintainer eventually decides that there really are zero
users, that's a different thing, and will be independent of any
version number change. Dropping truly dead code is always welcome,
regardless of anything else. But it needs to be truly dead, not
"wouldn't it be nice if we didn't carry this any more".
