The answer is that there's a huge difference between patching something
to get some feature for your own build and actually to provide support,
to keep maintaining the code.

We aren't going to spend more time on maintaining already deprecated 
experimental protocol.  A lot of work is being done for every release
to find and fix bugs, to implement new features, to test on various
platforms.  All these procedures are essentially to provide high quality 
product for millions of users around the world with various use cases and 
configurations.  Any additional line of code adds additional cost to this
