If it is unsupported, which it is as far as I can tell, removal is not
such a bad option, IMHO.  Certainly the website presents it as a
former flagship application, but it is first and has an important
sounding name.  Without doubt it should be deprecated and stated
clearly as being utterly unsupported and moved down the list at least
as far as LCDBible.
