Description

Examples like bug 1509340 show that keeping the fastblock code around is only costing us in terms of a stream of regressions that we need to fix (and also, added development time to deal with the existing code, which is no longer used for anything.)

It is also very confusing to have this feature which doesn't have any UI any more but can still be turned on, probably accidentally.  It's time to remove it.  I checked with pdol, in case we want to resurrect a new version based on the same idea we can always bring the code back from version control.
