> Cons:
> * Modules that use this module will run more slow
> * Some Modules will not run and others have some break's.
* There will be less interest in upgrading a module prolonging the inevitable.
* Most modules will suddenly break when moving from D7 to Dx.
* Legacy remains legacy forever and the maintenance of such a module  
becomes unbearable as more core versions are released.

As has been mentioned already deadwood and coder modules are the way  
to go when upgrading.  Identifying to the module maintainer or  
interested party where the code needs to be upgraded is jump in the  
correct direction.  Deadwood even changes what it can.  Improving that  
module is where we need to focusing the legacy issue.
