So is a welcome candidate for orderly removal.  Like announcing its 
planned removal with LO 4.0 and actually removing it with 4.1.  (It can 
already be considered deprecated for quite a while, so I would not mind 
removing it already in 4.0, either, if need be.  For authors of old 
extensions, all that should be necessary is to rebuild them with a 
recent SDK.)

If there are no objections, I'll take care of the 4.0-announcment, 
4.1-removal plan.
