As far as I know everything going into Linux kernel goes through Linus.
I really can't say if that's "being relevant" or not, but I'd vote "yes".
I'd like to compare hints to gotos, no-one really wants them and too many is a nightmare, but sometimes they are really, really useful.
Also: "Never" is a very long time, I suspect religious fanatism(*) every time I hear it. ;)
"Never" as in "never in the lifetime of this application" might even be possible.
*) As we know, reality or facts have no effect on religion.
