So far, everything has been couched in terms of remove the way it is now
and put in its place something "better". Heikki and Josh have said that
or similar, as has Robert Haas on another thread, and Fujii-san
specifically said "get rid of" the existing functionality. I am
completely against the removal of an existing capability that is
critically important to many users.

If we can add new functionality that is a nice-to-have for a large
number of people without removing a feature that is critical to many
users, bring it on. If we can't do that, then I would oppose.
