(1) doesn't matter to me, but +1000 to (2) and I have very little compunction 
about (3), aside from the obvious fact that once you start pulling that thread, 
you're on slippery ground.

I wasn't prepared to really go so far as to start tossing things out or 
proposing really invasive changes but it sounds like cleaning up and releasing 
the trunk would serve both short term and longer term ends here.
