I plan to put back with a strong deprecation warning the parts that are
used now but harmless: version, copyright, mdate (without mwait), homedir
and cachedir.

I plan to add homedir() and cachedir() to a config.* namespace, without a
deprecation warning.
I plan to add a duration param to vlc.osd.message to kill one of the main
usage of mwait(mdate() + xx).
I do not plan to put version and copyright back, nor mwait.

I plan to then discuss with the few extensions writer to fix their
scripts. And to help them move away from mwait to callbacks.

I plan to improve the documentation about all that. And then remove the
deprecated symbols in the next major version.
