No, removing was the threat for the case that nobody even says clearly
that it works and is useful and why. As I understood the various mails,
so far all arguments for it have been either purely theoretical or based
on the assumption that removing anything that has a MSVC #ifdef means
less support for MSVC.
Ideally the #ifdef should be amended by a comment how this code is used
by others, this will make it easier to keep it working, given that we
have no test-case/maintainer for it.
