The status is that it never got completed.  I intended to do it during 
the freeze of 5.22 for 5.24, but found higher priority issues.  I plan 
to work on it after visible changes freeze is done for 5.24, or if other 
things come up, during the freeze period, so it goes in 5.25.  I see no 
reason for it to have to be done in time for 5.24.  Maybe a comment 
should be added to it so that people don't keep trying to remove it and 
find this block after they've wasted their efforts.
