Not only does the Foundations Team appear to have taken over maintenance of
this package, but the UI bug that led to the request for removal seems to be
a duplicate of bug #536908 which was just fixed in an upload yesterday.

Certainly there isn't anything else that implements this functionality; I
don't see cause to remove it from the default install.
