[OpenSIPS-Users] Obsolete Modules

For the trunk version and the new 2.1 we would like to obsolete some of 
the old modules that are no longer widely used anymore. The reason we 
are doing this is that it will decrease the compile time for OpenSIPS 
and will keep the modules/ directory cleaner.
Note that these modules will not be deleted, but rather moved to a new 
directory, called modules_obsolete/. If you really need to use one of 
them, you can simply move them in the modules/ directory.

We were first thinking about the following modules:
- mi_xmlrpc - A lighter version called mi_xmlrpc_ng[1] has been 
developed, which does not uses the heavy abyss library. For more 
information check this thread[2].
- closeddial - The same functionality can be achieved using the more 
powerful and efficient dialplan module[3].
- diameter[4] - This module is no longer maintained because the library 
it is built on is no longer maintained.

What do you think about this? Are there any reasons why we should keep 
any of these modules? What other modules do you think we should move there?
