Aye, that's a point. If (a) it's broken (that's the major argument) and (b) 
maintainence is impossible, then we can phase out support. Not drop it 
*plonk* from one day to another. A statement to the effect "objprelink will 
no longer be supported in 3.2" would probably be sufficient, that's sure to 
give enough of a lead time.

OK, I'll crawl back into my hole and come out breathing fire again some other
