OK, how about we agree to chuck it only when the old code actually does
get in our way for something?

I think the problem with my GHC 6.6 and autoconf stubbornness was not so
much trying to maintain support, but trying to do despite the many
occasions where it would get in our way.  So we could *still* try to
keep the zlib code around, only this time agree to get rid of it, when
it is a demonstrably an impediment to progress.
