honestly, I think not many people used it...
I ran
grep -R " pow~" *
in my pd-directories and found only two patches (of 10000+) besides the 
helppatch for pow~, that use it. nusmuk for distortion.pd, tb for 
I don't know other big collections like net-pd (I think I just checked 
pdmtl). and maybe "official" tutorial patches floating around.

anyway, I can only speak for myself, and I would like to see "pow~" with 
a new behaviour.
