The second proposal appears, from an outside view, to be an unfair
restriction. We'd be removing functionality that currently works, and
I don't know if I like that.

Sure it might clean up the code and all, BUT perfect code for a
crippled app is never a good idea.

I'd like to put my support behind proposal #1.
