There will be at least two steps involved. The first is changing the
default configuration to one of the new libcs, a second one is removing
oskit specific code from the packages. There will be some amount of time
between the two steps.

Using the new libcs it possible right _now_, it's just that the default
configuration hasn't been changed yet. But I guess that will happen not
too long away. We will send a notice out when doing so.

I do, and it works for me. Most of the relevant stuff is available for
ARM. There are not many platforms supported right now so using it may
cause some platform specific work to do.
