How about we add the switches in 1.5 but leave it on and mark the feature as 
obsolete in the release notes. In 1.6, disable it by default. And then when 2.0 
comes along, rip the code out if nobody has howled by then. (The release notes 
should lay out this timeline as well.)

If there's anything else we're firmly convinced needs ripping out, we should 
follow the same path. There are many MH users who aren't on the mailing list, 
so we really need to let this stuff soak in the field for a long time before 
ripping out the actual code, to give everyone a chance to speak up if the 
changes will hit them hard.
