Sure, discover1 is ... my thoughts on its codebase are unprintable.

But since d-i uses it (joeyh apparently had trouble making a udeb of
discover2), we still use it also. And nothing uses discover2. And
shipping discover-data along with discover1-data just makes THREE PLACES
you have to make every change (old lists in discover1-data [which I only
just discovered yesterday], old lists in discover-data, and new lists in
discover-data). Ugh.

I think we should drop discover and discover-data.
