However, the motive for unload-feature had to do with
reclaiming memory.  With the other changes in size of machines,
size of disks, and size of Emacs address space, maybe that is
pointless.  Maybe we should eliminate unload-feature just
to make things simpler and avoid spending time on it.

unload-feature is also good for cleaning up the global namespace, so I
hope it continues to be supported.  If *-unload-hook is the problem,
perhaps just that should be deprecated.
