The patch is not that big. Most of its content is in tests and
examples. The only problem is that it exposes a behavioral change that
may break reverse dependencies at runtime.

There are many reverse dependencies that would be removed by removing
this package, including some high profile ones, like etcd, rkt,
influxdb. Their removal will in turn remove a lot of additional
packages.
