- <p>In Telepathy 0.20 and older, we represented contact lists as a - collection of ContactList channels. This is remarkably difficult to - work with in practice - every client that cares about contact lists - has to take the union of some hard-to-define set of these - channels - and conflicts with the idea that channels that cannot - be dispatched to a handler should be closed.</p> There's no need to delete rationale that refers to ContactList channels (or other deprecated features) as "this is what we used to do, but it was crap"; that's still true. This text doesn't really add anything either, though, so removing it is fine. Both commits look good.
