HI Bruno,

as things stand we have to maintain it until py.test no longer depends on it

a 2.0 release that kills py.code is a non-option as any project
dependign on ot will be limited in py.test version

my plan is to de-vendor bits of pylib (like iniconfig, apipkg)

some have been lone projects at the beginning anyway (apipkg and
iniconfig got only vendored due to the bad state of packaging

stuff like svn can be removed as it is completely broken

basically once we de-vendored the bits we use and removed the py.path
dependency of pytest,
we can put pylib into a abandoned state

but before that *eek*
