I have to say, I still can't support having this in oe-core. Providing
alternatives to GPLv3 software is fine, but not when the 'alternative' is
a very old, unsupported version of the same software, which inevitably
brings issues in functionality and maintenance.

But if Ross and/or Richard disagree, then I'll have to accept it.

"Inappropriate" is a better reason here, with clarification that the
patches are to make an old version work and upstream won't be interested
in them.

What are you deleting here and why?
