That's a fair question.

Is there anything that would indicate that "this file is obsolete and
problems shouldn't be fixed"?  Nobody wants to waste time on things
that don't need to be fixed, but I don't know how to tell if something
is obsolete.

My naive assumption is that if something is in the tree, it's fair
game for fixes and cleanups.
