That was when it was added.

Keeping it around without a specification is a bad idea. And no, the
plan is not to keep it anywhere forever. The plan is to keep it around
until we can ensure that users aren't going to be affected by the

For helping the Gentoo KDE team out? I'll bear that in mind next time
Gentoo developers want help with something.

Uh. Riiiiight. I'm just drowning in bug reports from users who're using
ebuilds that break with Paludis because we haven't implemented things
that've been used in the tree for years. Perhaps you'd care to back up
your mud-slinging with some examples.

It was added at the request of the Gentoo KDE team. It wasn't added
because I wanted it; it was added because Gentoo developers asked for
it. I realise you like to pretend that the people who asked for it
never existed, but the fact is they did, and it would be irresponsible
of Gentoo to make users suffer because of internal politicking.

You still haven't explained why it's better to delete it now than to do
a controlled removal that won't affect users.
