While it does not improve any of those areas you mentioned, usability
or speed, it does improve customizability which is important.

I would not be in favor of this, except for that fact that it used to
exist. removing features is never a good thing! Regression of features
is one of the big reasons why Tim is having trouble with Qt4! :P

It should be little work to do this, probably copy/paste and editing a
few functions. If it was a large undertaking i could understand
reasoning against it,  but i do not see that being the case.
