Thanks, missed that one!

There's not much effort going on with removing that code, so I wouldn't
expect it to leave any time soon. Ultimately, it needs to be reimplemented
via -Plugins so the functionality is not fully lost. Right now development
is shifting to some other changes.

And if possible, we'll leave -mutate in for legacy commands... much like
-findonly, which now is just an 'alias' for the proper -Plugins options.
