I don't think NetWare should be called out specially like this; either 
list all removed targets explicitly, or say "all targets deprecated in 
4.6" (with a link to the deprecation list), "except for" a list of the 
targets reprieved.

AFAIK of all the targets deprecated in 4.6, no other one has been
removed so far.  I just meant to mention NetWare since the removal has
already taken place.  Once the others are gone, there's no more need to
single out NetWare.

I removed them all in March except for Interix and SCORE.  I didn't put 
anything in the release notes at the time because it remains to be seen 
whether interested people will get patches in to undeprecate those two 
targets or whether they will be removed as well.
