I am trying to get consensus to remove these things, and where there is
consensus I'll continue to remove them.

We have a modern version control system.

I also give higher priority to the requirements of at least one of the
remaining active developers, who would like to work on features without
being slowed down by the sheer amount of unmaintained and indisputably
unused code.

Finally, at least some of the code I removed recently is not
formerly-working, as I detailed in earlier mails.
