I confirm it. WPS disappeared from the git repository just before
version 0.6.3. I hoped that WPS would be in a separate branch, but I

I'm also concerned about it. It's not that I would likely use it
myself, but it's useful code licensed under GPL. It's worrying to see
it disappear without any warning or discussion.
