I really give a sh*t whether Artem can use them or not. He is not the
center of the universe. If he needs them changed, then he should send
a patch or a suitable replacement for the tool, which does not force
others to fixup their scripts and build tools for no benefit. This is
not a sandbox, this are tools used in production environments.

Artem, please stop this nonsense right now. You can create your own
world if you have the urge to do so, but please keep stuff others use
intact. This "I don't like that old crap" attitude is an arrogant and
at the same time ignorant childish behaviour, which has no place in a
serious project.

No, they go back to their place immediately, period.

Yours even more grumpy,
