Yes, it's a pity to invest more energy into additional work for a
system that people hope to get rid of, but that argument also applies
to time spent on the the sysadmin side.  If we just think it's not
worth fixing this cleanly, we perhaps shouldn't force sysadmins to
tidy up their local scripts for it now, but just leave things until
they need to modify their local setups more fundamentally for a
replacement system.
