I think the conclusion here was that we don't really want to make
abbrev.el depend on skeleton here, so the patch was never applied.

For the other issue -- I'm going to go ahead and guess that expand.el is
still used by people (because it's so simple that some people might
prefer it), so obsoleting it would be controversial, I think.

So I'm closing this bug report.
