I also want to get rid of it rather sooner than later. But we have to deal with the compiler for quite a while in 5.9 anyway, and I’d expect that a lot of the bug fixes will go there. So the question is how much we’re gaining dropping it now a month before the 5.10 freeze.
In any case, I’ve asked for download numbers for 2013. I’d like to see those before we make the decision.
