Android: Remove the old UI, and remove support for pre-5.0 devices. #2501
The new UI is effectively at feature parity and nary a soul exists who wants to work on the old one.
Let's kill it with fire, so we can move on to bigger and better things.
Edit: I should've made this clearer before, but effectively this PR will end support for Android devices running OS older than 5.0
Is it OK if I make a pull request with my AppCompat changes now?

I assume what you mean by that is to switch out all the Android 5.0+ UI views with their AppCompat equivalents.
The biggest thing that'll get us is the ability to run the new UI on pre-5.0 devices. I am trying to remove support for those intentionally, because any device that has a chance of running Dolphin capably will come preloaded with, or has been updated to, 5.0.
I've been meaning to move to AppCompat equivalents eventually anyway, as it will add some future-proofing (and may be required to use the Design Support Library announced last week). If you've already done this, there's no reason not to submit a PR for it once this is merged.
