As long as free software goes, users can do anything they want. The API can be enabled, of course, the preference just needs to be flipped back and the URL of geolocation service has to be provided. The idea was to remove the default URL to Google service that can't be self-hosted in 100% free software stack AFAIK. Whoever needs to use it is free to add the URL back themselves.

Services that can't be self-hosted in 100% free software stack are a freedom problem too, so I thought to make this change to at least bring someones attention to it. Probably we'll need to remove references to other such services, like DuckDuckGo search and replace them with self-hostable ones.

re: i686, sounds good. But unfortunately I won't have time to check this out until this weekend.
