+1 for removing gears. But we have to be careful with this kind of changes - this will create a different recognition hash than before and affects every Piwik instance. This can lead to a corruption of metrics for a given recognition timeframe.
For the migration, we could use both hashes (with and without gears "0") but only store the new hash. This would not affect the quality of the metrics and could be completed in the next update (remove gears completely). Legacy code is bad, but the integrity of stats is very important.

Changed base to 3.dev, re-open?
@pebosi I'd like to re-open but the repository where the code was has been deleted so I cannot reopen it directly. Would you be able to re-create the PR? would be great!
