Quoting myself in the thread from 12 Nov 2020:

   This whole "implies" thing turned out to be a colossal PITA.

   I regret the fact that it got merged.  It wasn't my idea.

This whole thing came about because Nicolas Pitre wanted to make PHC
core support into a module and also to be able to remove dynamic posix
clock support for tinification.  It has proved to be a never ending
source of confusion.

Let's restore the core functionality and remove "implies" for good.

Thanks,
Richard
