What about stuff that's a bug but not really a bug?  Recently I asked 
about some custom memory mapping routines (~/lib/map_stupidshared.c) 
designed to "work around DEC stupidity", incredulous that anyone was 
still using DEC systems, and didn't get a response.

In the case of redhat (cyrus-imapd-2.3.16-5.src), one of the patches 
"fixes" ~/imap/make_md5.c by replacing the md5 stuff with sha1. 
Technically, this isn't a bug fix, but given that md5 is insecure, is it 
really a good idea not to convert this to make_sha1.c?
