If don't move this, then there is same reason to don't more others. Then don't
change any C code which existed for a long time. So the result is don't touch
any C code.... A reason like existing for decade time is not a reasonable
argument. Should talking technically.

An old house existing for decades, should not update it.... because it exists
decades. We should talk about why update it. And Dmitry Gutov and Stefa gives
clear reason. But you didn't give technical reason. So I think it's not really
arguing correctly. Really should stop this.
