I'd prefer that the support for the MSDOS port not be removed until I
decide to stop working on it altogether.  After all, apart of the
msdos/ subdirectory, which can hardly be a nuisance to anyone, the
MSDOS support boils down to:

  . 5 DOS-specific C files
  . several __MSDOS__/__DJGPP__ cpp directives scattered through the
    common sources.

That doesn't seem too much.
