In theory, yes.  Judging by the comments on the implementation, a
more efficient approach should probably be implemented if the decision
is made to maintain multiple linuxulators.

This is what the current implementation does.

IMHO, it is cleaner to explicitly delete it once it becomes non-functional.
Having dead code lying around just slows down compilation and misleads
people into thinking that it is functional.  If someone wants to resurrect
it at a later date, they can always retrieve it from the Attic.
