That's crazy. You are asking upstream to maintain code in order to just
make out of tree crap easier to maintain, which you don't have any plan
to ever upstream? That causes havoc on static analysis tools and
prevents anyone from ever being able to even change the code for new api
changes and test build it.

If this was in a subsystem that I maintain, I'd delete it tomorrow. But
in the end, it's up to David to decide if he wants to waste the cycles
or not.

Ick ick ick.
