This is a recurring problem in Fedora: Developers of software X think that 
feature Z is better done in software Y and happily remove Z from X, often 
without even talking to the developers of Y, and always without waiting for 
Y to actually implement the feature. In some cases, it is not even clear 
whether Z can be implemented properly (i.e., to the extent it was in X) in 
Y, I don't know whether that's the case here or whether it's just a matter 
of time.

Features MUST NOT get removed without a working replacement!
