noscript.removeSMILKeySniffer - Protection against scriptless keylogging using SMIL animation elements that are triggered by keystrokes.
Doing a grep through NoScript 5.1.9rc1, the ONLY instance of "removeSMILKeySniffer" is the pref listing in defaults/preferences/noscript.js. Does this feature still exist in NoScript Classic? If not, could the pref please be removed to avoid confusion and possible false sense of security?

The feature was removed as soon as the underling bug was fixed in Firefox (so no false sense of security).
But yes, it should go away if I ever release another classic.

Thanks Giorgio. I will try to find which NoScript version it was removed in and update the sticky.
