Hi, Mathias,

yours is the first comment I read about that section. In fact, this section
comes from the old HOWTO collection, and I felt it was only appropriate to
keep it in, if the warning about its unmaintained status is made more
prominent and the call for volunteers is repeated.

That's why I feel it should not be just abandoned.

OK -- this is open for discussion. If I hear more voices about it blowing
the same horn, it might go out...
