No me either, and my memory is flaky at best,  But I believe it must
have been something along the lines of "we need --wds-set-ip-family
anyway to support older modems without the ip family TLV, so why bother
doing both?"

I don't know how relevant that is anymore.  Experience with the DMS UIM
commands shows that Qualcomm will remove deprecated functionality.
Which implies that libqmi has to support every method they ever came up
with, since there will be some modem requiring it...
