Maybe you should officially deprecate the GMAC driver in favor of SunGEM,
then? Put something on its line in the config scripts that says
***DEPRECATED***, and something in for it that says
something like "Please DO NOT use me, use the SunGEM driver instead!" so
there's no question, so maybe someday it can be dropped?
