Needing to deal with this was almost enough motivation to stop
supporting floppies for the 7.X release but I decided that was a bit too
drastic (just barely :-).

But I think this does signal the end.  Please plan around floppy support
being nuked from HEAD some time fairly shortly after RELENG_7 gets
branched (meaning no floppy support for 8.X).
