Mike (Budda) mentioned that on one of the issues so it may be worth retiring
the module. But if you do, you still need to think of the 1000s of users
using it. They'll need/want a migration path.

Currently, I have two modules in this state. Paypal_framework is superseded
by lm_paypal module and Scheduler is superseded by Scheduled Actions (and
soon Workflow which I believe is going to get scheduled transitions at some
future point). So, I plan to retire these two. However, I have made them
Drupal-5 compatible for those that use them. However, as can be seen by the
announcement on the paypal_framework project page, the module is in "end of
life" mode which for me at the moment means "it'll get maintained to
Drupal-6 at least". I'll make a decision nearer that time.

On a side note, seems a lot of duplicity is creeping despite the best
efforts of the cvs admins. That's two modules I'll retire thanks to other
modules. Not complaining, frees me up to do other things. But it's a shame a
module can't build a "fan base" and have them improved upon. Seems to me the
current fashion in module creatation is "that module nearly does what I
want, so to fill in the missing feature I'll..... yes.... write a whole
brand new one" ;)

Anyway, more modules make it all look bigger ;)
