On behalf of people like me who are mere users, let me protest that
removing vinum would break working systems and create needless hardship.
What would be gained?  Are there upcoming changes in the rest of the OS
that the presence of vinum would make harder?  If not, then please branch
vinum to perforce if you like, but leave it in -current until it's actually
broken for most users, which is not the case now.
