This is not used anywhere else, that is correct.

I don't understand what you mean by 'special things with it'. In theory,
removing it could stop currently-functioning tilecache.cfg files from
working, so I'm not generally in favor of it, unless I can understand
Since I know that saying 'no' is equal to requesting a fork, let me
clarify that I'm willing to entertain the idea, but I'd want more
details than 'and do special things with it'.
