Speaking seriously, ADP is still in use even if it is a lame
protocol, so no it's not going to get dropped. The RDI code is
however a completely steamy pile, and if I had to do it all over
again, I would rather have spent three weeks of 16-hour days
implementing the protocol from scratch, rather than taking
the same amount of time stretched out over months trying to
get it to work right on every host.
The ADP protocol is more complicated than the standard
remote protocol, and if you stick to what actually works rather
than what ARM fantasized about but never implemented, it's
not really that hairy. Another case where I chickened out
rather than doing the Right Thing.
