We have no reason to remove it if a user really needs it. ;)
The reason for having changed the command bound to the `M' key
was that the behavior of the present one simply took my fancy.
Having made them obsolete was overkill, I think now, so I deleted
those marks with `do not delete' comments.
Thanks for pointing it out.
 It begun with: http://emacs-w3m.namazu.org/
Before the change the commands bound a key or a menu as follows:
-> Menu-bar, Link-menu (that mouse-3 pops up)
-> M-key, Tab-menu
