It was also intended to allow easier sharing for folks that were using
FreeBSD 4.x, 5.x, etc. I know that at least one user still has some
4.x deployments, but I suspect that they are otherwise off 4.x so it
might not be a problem for them. It would be yet another thing to
change when going from 7.x to 8.x for them...
We certainly should remove it from the drivers in the tree for 8.0.
Right now it is used in about a two dozen places.
