I don't think there is any reason to remove braille support from grml. I've been testing it every release up to the latest and reporting the results on the grml list. I know a version just came out a few weeks ago and I haven't tested it. It's just that I happen to be on vacation. They had a really quick release cycle andI just didn't have time to test it. I certainlhy hope grml doesn't do something as drastic as dropping braille support just because I happened to be on vacation.
