Description (last modified by cotto) (diff)

This PMC is poorly tested. There are 3 places in core code where it's used, but none of these are hit during make test. This PMC needs to go away. According to our deprecation policy, the next time this can happen is after the 1.0 release.

In the meantime, I'll remove all uses of the code from the rest of Parrot to make the removal easy when the time comes.

This code and PMC are removed by r37634, along with the concomitant PBC_COMPAT bump. The PMC and the code which used it had no test coverage, so this removal unsurprisingly caused no test failures.

I'm not entirely sure what expected use case for this code is, but I'll take the fact that it was introduced in r7518 and still (as of r37626) has zero test coverage as a sign that it wasn't very important.
