    There was a confused discussion last week over SIL Ezra and Ezra SIL,
    and the fact that the older one used PUA code points (falsely rumored to
    be "high ASCII") to support something that the newer one supported using
    proper Unicode techniques. So the older one might be considered
    "legacy" in a way.

    Distribution of TITUS Cyberbit Basic was severely limited at one point,
    and many users may still have versions that are only updated to Unicode
    2.1. That would not count as "legacy," but it would certainly be "not
    up to date."
