personally I think that leaving at_console in for 1.4 and cleaning it up
would be the best. And then target the removal for the 1.6 release.
If the discussion about at_console would delay the 1.4 release, then I
vote for leaving that out for now. It is more important to get the 1.4
release out so we can actually profit from the new features.

That would be best answered by David Zeuthen :)
