I just played around with it, and from the perspective of somebody  
who runs a drupal hosting company, that deploys from cvs.

Is there any reason why this should not be in core? Why should we  
require to ship with another module to clean up an issue that core  
itself has.

The issue I have is that we are currently using standard drupal  
install profiles for the hosted sites, and having to ship with this  
module extra would
make the hosted install profiles a special case (enabling the module  
above everything else).

Is this going to be part of Drupal 6 at least?
