[Bf-committers] Simple Deform modifier setting removed?

This is intentional, having modifiers use absolute coordinates is
unusual and weak design - it means you can't take an object and move
it to a new location without it changing in some way.

If you need a modifier to reference some location (0/0/0 in this
case), just add an empty object here and reference it from the
modifier's origin.
