I would like to see it go in its entirety so that we can remove the
C goop that goes with it.
That's why I think dontusethis- would come in handy: with it you can
(theoretically) convert (setq binary-process-output t) to mean
(setq coding-system-for-read 'binary). Then you can get rid of the C
goop, and yet have a transitional period of backward compatibility.
That's what how dontusethis- was meant to be used.
