The problem is it is not maintained, and there are outstanding been  
bug reports.

If you un-deprecate it, then we need a response to people who come  
across problems with it when using it. Either you change the POD to  
say exactly who and when one should use it (or rather not) and point  
to the fact that it is unsupported for all other cases.

Or what would you suggest?
