This is the kind of checkin comment where the phrasing is a little
confusing. It could mean either "was removed by mistake and has now
been restored" or else "is no longer supported and has been removed".
(Checking the diff resolves the ambiguity in favour of the latter
interpretation, but not all diffs are as simple as this one).

It's worth trying to make the final state of the source tree explicit
in the checkin message (no need to edit the history, just a note for
future reference).
