Um, Unless Haiku is lots closer to a release than it looks, it would be nice to keep it. Mainly since the only "legit" BeOS version you can get anymore is Max v4. But it is possible I misunderstand the implications. :-)
I believe you did misunderstand. IIRC, the OpenBFS under R5 option was a way to test/use Haiku's BFS implemention under R5 before Haiku's was complete enough to use it. OpenBFS was one of the first components of Haiku to hit Alpha/Beta status, and therefore it needed to be tested in R5 as Haiku's kernel wasn't even bootable at that point. I think Axel is looking to drop the ability to compile and use OpenBFS in R5 as it's mostly unnecessary now.
