Well, luckily it's not your decision...

I use several of those tools you think can be removed.

We should improve and extend the draktools not cut them down!

I would really like a draklirc to configure IR remotes, since that's a
major pain to do manually (especially the first time), I even was thinking
of writing it myself, but never found the time for it so far.
