No, I am making no such assertion. The source code of dh_scrollkeeper
does nothing but:
* parse and validate the input arguments
* emit a warning
* terminate with exit code 0
If tool is a necessity for having two versions of GNOME installed, then
please consider replacing dh_scrollkeeper with a symlink to /bin/true.
If nothing else, the /bin/true-implementation is faster and it would
reduce the disk usage.
