The problem with such an arrogant attitude is that many sysops don't
complain when certain functions are removed, they just leave Fidonet with a
sigh of resignation.

The main reason we can still maintain our network is backward compatibility.
The FILE_ID.DIZ files are one example.

But of course, if you're not running a BBS -- just running a glorified point
system -- you don't need certain old functions like the above.
