Description

This joke has gone too far; I agree with doughera's post elsewhere about the upkeep and dealing with reports of segfaults outweighing the "fun" of the op.

If we get enough +1s, we can rip it out after 1.4 (though honestly, deprecating something that is designed to fail seems odd. Seems like in this one case, removing this before the next supported release would be ok.)

You can find my patch to rip it out over in TT #695.

+1 to remove it right now, else +1 to deprecate it.

The whole file myops.ops was deprecated in 1.0, eligible to be removed in 1.1 (TT #450), so feel free to nuke 'hcf'.

We do need to keep some dynamic ops in the repository, so we can test dynamic ops in general. But, far better than keeping crufty fake ops would be moving non-essential real ops to dynops (as listed in TT #449, also eligible in 1.1).
