This script has been largely unmaintained for a long time, so my 
personal opinion is that i'd rather see it removed.

That said, i know for a fact that users (especially non-expert ones) 
rely on this script, so removing it without providing a replacement is 
not practical. This patchset IMO is a good first step towards bringing 
the script up to date, but more work is needed as current usability of 
the script is atrocious.
