Yes, the old ISDN code still has a considerable user base at least
here in Germany. There are many ISDN devices which are supported by
the old ISDN subsystem (ISDN4Linux) but not the new one (CAPI2.0).
(Some of them are supported by out-of-tree CAPI2.0 drivers like mISDN,
but still.) Also, CAPI2.0 so far doesn't have a driver interface
document (like Documentation/isdn/INTERFACE for ISDN4Linux), so the
old drivers may still be with us for some time to come.

Besides, Jeff's proposed patch would disable the new ISDN subsystem
along with the old one, so I suppose his criticism applies to the
new one too.
