These kinds of comments really need to stop - it doesn't matter how
useful a utility is on your site, or even a number of users sites,
because *you can still install it from Extras*!

Removing a utility from Core is not going to in any way stop you from
doing what you need.  It'll just help make sure other users don't pay
the price (bloated "core" distro) for you doing what you need.
