Well I've never really used it, so take this with a grain of salt, but
after tidying it up a bit recently, the impression I got was that it
contains a few useful features and a lot of cruft.

Eg dired-filename-at-point is not massively different to ffap and
thing-at-pt, stuff like "hands-off-my-x-keys" seems clunky, dired-x's
local variables are now replaced by dir-locals, there's 50 lines and 3
commands dedicated just to deleting TeX and patch temp files, etc.

Plus it has its own manual, which is ~ 80% of the length of dired.texi,
which would have to be merged in somehow.
