Code is in branch nsentry.
Deprecated notice is going in.
pmichaud has agreed to write tests
There is already a ticket that discusses the current nsentry
issues at TT #389.
I think that 53302 can be closed/rejected with a link to
TT #389. I've already created a backlink from TT #389 to
this ticket, for people who want the historical context.
The nsentry branch has only one commit in it; i.e., it was
copied from trunk and then a single (relatively large) commit
was applied. We could potentially store the diff in TT #389
in case someone wants to go back and look at it for reference.
Either way, I think we can probably remove the nsentry branch
itself as being unsalvageable.
