Completely removing components from Rails 2.0 ( and possibly 1.2 stable )

Since components aren't really popular, why not rip them out entirely
from rails? I created a patch to do just that.

http://dev.rubyonrails.org/ticket/10195

[In my diff file I was trying to delete the components files, not
remove all the text]

Bitsweat suggested on the ticket that components need to be deprecated
in 1.2 stable before being included in trunk.

Is this patch a good idea? Did I rip out everything that needs to go?

To be clear, components are already gone. Sam proposes to remove the
underlying support methods as well.

If we weren't so far down the RC route I'd be fine with that.

Perhaps we can whip them out straight after we branch?
