well, might be nice, but I'm afraid we need to be more exact.

Could you please find out or estimate, for each of the utils you
- how many upstream tarballs do not build without it?
  - if they do not build, is it a transparent error, or
    is it a hard-to-debug problem (builds but does not work in
    certain special cases, for eample)?
- how many spec files call the utility?

If the number of packages affected is small, and if the broken
packages are easy to discover and fix, we can leave util-linux out.
