You are unilaterally making the decision to replace existing
functionality with something that provides considerably lesser
functionality, yet you have never proven the case that the lost
functionality is, in fact, extraneous.

But, hey -- it's clear your mind is made up, so we'll all just start
getting used to pulling the back off the device and removing the
battery.  This discussion, like the others involving removal of debug
and test code, seems to result in the same thing: if it's something the
core developers want, it goes in, but if it's something the user
community wants, they can fork the kernel and write it their way.  My
apologies for thinking this might be open for discussion.
