Removing **my** unused/incomplete/unneeded features ?

Here is the features I have added to jnode sources in the past and I am now thinking to remove :
- Support for vmware disks : it's based on 'Virtual Disk Format 1.0' specifications (from VMWare)
The implementation is here : distr/src/apps/org/jnode/apps/vmware/disk
The tests are here : distr/src/test/org/jnode/apps/vmware/disk/test
I started to write that when I wanted to embed some files inside a jar and inside the iso to use them inside jnode.
It's an incomplete and some parts of the specifications wasn't clear. Now, I strongly prefer to use KVM and I have the application packager (among other ways), I don't see any need to continue that work (if there is some interest ouside of jnode, it might become its own project, independently of JNode).
- jar file system : the intent was also to build a JNode filesystem on top of a jar file. Like for above, I don't feel the need to continue that thing.
The incomplete implementation is here : fs/src/fs/org/jnode/fs/jarfs
What do you think ? Should these features be removed or someone else want to continue that work ? Please comment.
