We're not dropping it :)  It works just as well as it did until now, which 
is not too well.  Solving the problems that arise by deprecating dl() 
(improving the ODBC module, for instance) are much easier than solving the 
problems that fixing the broken things about dl().  Right now, we're simply 
keeping the status-quo.
