  We can remove such methods.  It is more for the sake of
completeness.  I think it is somewhat embarrasing to have a piece of
code that we can't really tell from where it came from.

-- Yoshiki

  At the same time, we probably never know that where all the code
*really* came from for sure; but for the argument to other kind of
free software communities, that part is equally true to any other kind
of projects and we are not particularly doing bad.

  Or, maybe we are.  A project to which everything is published to a
password protected repository, and no harvesting from emails, they may
be able to make stronger claims.  (But again, they cannot say *for
sure*, as some account may be cracked by somebody else, or the account
holder may be just pushing something on behalf of somebody else.)
