Remove pcidsk old driver or document why it is still needed

Description

Is there something the new driver can't do that the old driver can do?

If not, can I delete the old driver and the config option for the old driver?

A side question is why can't this driver be disabled? Do other drivers use it is somehow such that GDAL can't live without it?

I see no compelling reason not to remove the old pcidsk driver.

I am not sure what you mean about it not being disable-able. Doesn't GDAL_SKIP work with it?

I was just meaning that is there another driver that requires pcidsk to always be compiled in? The current behavior of --without-pcidsk compiles in the pcidsk old. GDAL_SKIP probably works just fine, but I have not tested it.
