The code cleaning is not yet finished, I still have commits (and done 
commits) that missed the 3.4 freeze (argh, missing free time) and some 
that needs to be done.

 >>         + be warned - it will die in a new major release soon.

Will be this 3.5 ? Or do you want to wait for the next version? If post 
3.5, then I will continue the cleaning. If no, I may change my work and 
try to perform cleaning (ergh, deletion) as proposed here below.
