I cannot imagine any reasonable use for this code; I vote for removing
it completely.  Sure, there may be some museum piece that uses this
code, but I say let them continue to use MH 6.8.5 if they really need it.
I'm personally not a fan of leaving the code but removing the documentation;
it should be all or nothing, in my mind.

And remind me ... weren't you the one who advocated everyone reading
meillo's thesis, where he makes a compelling case for removing _exactly_
stuff like this? :-)
