That patch is a bit surprising.
What prompted you to write this ?

Also, dont you think that before suggesting to deprecate a lib it would make
sense to talk with the author and maintainer of the library in question ?

Either way, the first question to ask would be
"why was/is it a seperate library"
I think, you do not know, 
And you should understand why things are as they are before suggesting to
deprecate, move or otherwise change them
