1.7 and obliterate

What's the status of obliterate?

I get the sense that it exists in our codebase, for all practical purposes,
in name only. If that's true, and if that's the state it's expected to be
in when 1.7 ships, then I'd really, really like to just see the feature not
ship at all. We don't have to can all the code, but certainly de-publicize
the lot of it (no pre-obliterate.tmpl hook creation, no obliterate-related
public APIs, etc.)

Some might say I'm letting the perfect be the enemy of the good, here. I'd
disagree, but openly admit that I'm trying to let the tolerable be the enemy
of the barely-working.

But maybe I'm misremembering the current utility of the feature?
