If that is the policy, I will do it on the next update.  Although the
last time I did that:

2006-01-07 George Sherwood <george at beernabeer.com>
        * DETAILS: Updated to version 2.6.1. BUILD_API=2 removed.
        * PRE_BUILD: Removed.  Patch doesn't work
        * CONFIGURE: Removed option to text front.  Not developed
anymore.
        * BUILD: Ensure text front end is disabled

I got a bugs written against it and patches submitted to make it work.
So somebody must like it. :)

George
