It is: it makes *understanding* nearly impossible. And it makes cleaning up impossible.

It's not just un-used, it's *very* badly structured, in addition.

There is unused code, but than there is  used code that needs to be cleaned
up to be faster and more compact. All the dead code makes this nearly impossible
to do, as the dead code uses the system, sometimes in ways that are very strange.
