I'm saying that the option would not exist, but that the underlying  
#ifdefs would remain. That way, if you absolutely must use it, it's  
available, but it's clear that it's not considered part of the  
'stable' release.

My view is that if it isn't "stable", then the option to enable it  
shouldn't be present as part of the stable release series.
