Why would we deactivate it?

Read again. This was my argument against removing the iRiver code for
the 2.5 release.

Yes, but that won't be until the 2.6 or 3.0 release. The 2.5 release
will not claim iRiver support.

Exactly. This is why we should release 2.5 before iRiver is stable,
without branching or removing iRiver code.
