In the case of procmail its really useful so the pay-for-distros RedHat, SuSE, ... should man up and take responsibility for long term support, even if it only takes the form of a Free Beer for some older/retired developer to do the security patches.
Just when Linux is getting real traction in the embedded space we do not want to screw our server, super-computer or desktop users.
Abandoning useful code, gratuitous breakage and the un-necessary and capricous glibc 'romprement gratuite d'année' ie the memcpy debacle ...Yes SSE code can be used fore something.
