No, I mean that if -bin was removed, then the missing "-bin stuff" 
should be implemented in -sun, before -bin was removed and -sun renamed 
to -bin. But this was when I still thought that -sun was the original 
one. Since it's not, there's no reason anymore for keeping it.

Actually, yeah. I forgot the "PUEL" stuff is nowadays available through 
the extension pack.

But this should, of course, still be taken care of.
