I use these two functions often, to create the README ;)

However, I agree with your opinion, I use several years old scripts for
some of my packages, IIRC these are hacked versions of Charles' original
build script.  It still works and I don't see the point to upgrade.

However, every maintainer is free to add as many features as needed to
get her packages out of the door.
