Which is impossible, of course, as there are many packages such as JDEE, ECB
and Cedet which might use them. The only time we'll know if they are still
used is after their removal when someone complains.

If ten years of byte compiler warnings stating that a variable is obsolete is
not enough to justify its removal, I'll probably spend less time on dealing
with them, not more.
