Sorry, no idea. The saveconfig is something Ulf added a long time ago
- But you're right, I don't see why it should be needed for saveconfig
/ getconfig, so I'll remove it.

2009.01 is still there, but marked as deprecated (select Build
Options->Show packages that are deprecated or obsolete to see it). The
real question is why 2008.10 isn't marked as deprecated yet. I vaguely
remember something about 2009.01 being broken on avr32 or similar, but
I guess we can deprecate 2008.10 by now.
