This is a compelling argument. Unused and probably-not-working cruft
is a real turn-off to potential contributors. Even if experienced
maintainers are only minimally affected by the unnecessary complexity,
removing it can be a net benefit. The bounded-pointers code appears
to be a good example of bitrot that it'd be helpful to excise.
