This topic has been exhaustively discussed.  XP is dead for future work.
 Let's move on and let it die.  If someone wants to maintain a fork for
XP users then perhaps Corinna would be willing for a git branch to
exist, maybe?  But someone has to be responsible for maintaining it and
it will not be the maintainers of the official release branches.  So
Thomas are you volunteering to do that if Corinna allows it?
