Then how about starting a campaign to get applications that currently use 
it to build without enabling support for it? Is that even feasible?
I would expect at least some applications to have config switches that 
enable/disable it.

Probably too late to do that for lenny, but it would be good to start on 
it early afterwards.

My mistake then. And my apologies for that.

Yeah, I saw some comments about that in your changelog entries.
