I'd argue for keeping it in, otherwise new/experimental/inspiration code
never gets tried by anyone but the very adventurous. Having it CVS-only
puts the barrier too high for beginners at GRASS coding. It will only
exist for those compiling from source, the sort of person who'd probably
end up using 'gmake5' for little things anyway. The binaries won't
change size. Let the 5.7 cvs sort out the old & unused code from the
still experimental; pretty much everything in the 5.0.x branch applies
to 5.0.x, no? Is there lots of unported 4.3 left?

Certaintly leave everything in the 5.3 snapshots.
