I mean, I completely acknowledge that!  I am just thinking out loud.  Like
I said, I can only come up with weak reasons to add it.  I am just trying
to understand why they are kind of around, but not really.

(FWIW, those utilities _had_ man pages, from my looking at the history
of things.  But when things were converted from nroff format to using
rst as the source format, that work was never done for those utilities).

Also, I am building those programs now and I see they did not compile with
a prototype mismatch for an internal function.  So, yes, they need a bit
of love.
