    It is obvious we are speaking at cross angles, or whatever that
    expression is.
    The symbols Chris is proposing to remove were added by the LSM project,
    and are confined to the LSM project. No one outside of the LSM community
    could possibly be using these symbols, since they didn't exist until we
    put them there. :)
    We put them there so that modules could attempt to perform stacking on
    their own. Now that the LSM interface provides better support for
    stacked modules, there is no need to continue to support this interface.
    This change affects no one outside the LSM community, and the LSM
    community has shown that the need for these symbols doesn't exist any
    longer, because the infrastructure is there to better support what this
    was intended to do in the first place.
    Cheers! :)
