[Bf-committers] Proposal to Remove Features

Hi Brecht,

* removing Sequencer plugins without having a new interface is not
   very nice(tm). Can't talk about Texture plugins, never used them.

* Fields rendering: should definitely stay in! I use it on a regular basis
   for DVD generation. (Don't know, how you want to generate fields
   afterwards with "specialised tools"... ? )

* Sequencer Glow effect. Haven't used it, but why does it hurt?
   I think, better solution is: make a serious plugin interface, move
   most (all?) of the sequencer effects to plugins. But in that order!
   Don't remove first and let people wonder, how they should make things

Can't say much about the other points, but I think, that removing features 
should only be done, if automatic porting to a new feature is possible 
within do_versions()...
