That I would understand. I was not arguing about the precise command
contained in misc, but the fact that having a file in lisp/ for a single
command, and not a very complicated or idiosyncratic one, is weird.

Yeah, I know is error messages. Still I'd be surprised. I follow the GCC
list, and changes to error messages and warnings are often hot topics.

Ok. Still, I fail to grasp why you sometimes oppose adding a five-line
function as "cruft", and at some other moment support maintaining a
module no one is sure it's used anywhere :)

<sigh> I haven't called (almost) anything obsolete. I've asked if some
mdules where or not, and stated why I thought they perhaps were...

What about unused.el?
