in principle, we don't, that's right. However, the poly con2prim routine
is used as a fallback when the general con2prim fails. So we would at least
want to keep this one. (Also note that that there is a naming issue with the
source code files for HLLE; I'll fix this today. Don't remove the _poly file.).
