Any reason to keep the socks* modules?

There are four unsupported and undocumented modules in kernel:


We are thinking about removing them in the next patch for the
kernel application and from R10B-2.

The reason is that there is at least one bug (found by Dialyzer),
and probably many more.

Does anyone have a good reason for keeping them? Does anyone
actually use them?
