I'm not opposed to leaving things in.  I am curious as to the future of
certain specific features.  For example, the WinCE port as written had a lot
of Image system changes, and while I don't think they would have landed
as-is, they were prompting discussion about how to redesign some of the
Image subsystem to accommodate them.  If we're still hoping to land these
changes (in some form) it imposes a different set of design constraints than
if we're not.

Anyway, thanks for the reply.
