we should have dropped this SAPI years ago
Can we not move SAPIs to PECL?

    I've been talking about it for several years now.
    I was told that there are no facilities like 'pecl install' that would work for
    SAPIs, therefore moving them to PECL would effectively mean dropping them at all.

    But does anybody really care of some unused and unsupported SAPIs?
    I don't.

    What about to have an "abandoned code" section somewhere on the web, so
    that the code is not lost but its not either in cvs / distribution
    packages. If somebody wants to use it, just downloads the diff which was
    created at the moment of dropping the support. If the src after the
    application won't compile, the user has to hack the code on its own and
    possibly post-back a new diff to share with others. A clear statement
    about the not-supported-by-phpdevs should be present on that abandoned
    code page.

    However it's questionable how many times will be those diffs reused. I
    can speak only for myself, when some gentoo-devs removed certain patches
    and I still wanted to use them.. only that they were nowhere to be
    found, not even on google.

    For this single issue try to offer the diff from removal to the
    maintainers of milter, maybe they can keep it for the future reuse.

    PECL may act as such storage.
    In fact it already does - there are quite a number of extensions that were
    added/moved, but were never released.
    See http://cvs.php.net/pecl/
