Apparently so... but we've been too lenient, since removing it completely
would affect a large number of people. And there's always been that
desire to get a magic geodns solution in its place...

Though there is one aspect that is scheduled to be terminated -
mirroring from it. I see that I've last updated the rsyncd motd to have
a harsh deprecation notice on 2007-11-17, which was almost eight months ago;
and before that it's been running with a bit less harsh deprecation notice
for years.

It's time to comment out the modules from there and make those people pay
more attention. If anybody has any last words... :)
