The point was we've swallowed most of a set of
functions which share the same shortcoming, there's
not much point in leaving some out - either pull
in the missing bits, and if necessary, write up
a manpage, or toss 'em all out. Incomplete confuses
configuration scripts (and maybe humans, too?) which 
either test for the missing one and assume none are 
available, or test for a present one and assume 
that the rest are present.
