Unless the answer is "yes", you mean? :-)

But more seriously, the question remains: do we obsolete code only when
it's superseeded by other code, or there are ways to obsolete code that
supports old systems (tools, operating systems, whatever) if we think
it's probably not used anymore? Taking into account that, currently,
obsoleting a lisp module is nothing more than moving it to obsolete/;
there's no clear directive about when, if ever, obsolete/*.el are going
to be deleted from the distribution.
