I've generally read that the old notion of components in Rails isn't
usually recommended anymore. Some newcomers to Rails see the
directory and right away start trying to learn about components. I'm
wondering if the core team feels that it could be removed in 2.0?
I'd probably have time to submit a patch if it seems appropriate. I
do worry about backward compatibility for some folks who might be
using old components, but I say, if it's not a recommended practice,
we probably just take it out.
