It's true that those scripts are mostly useless, but by the same
token, they don't cause problems. It seems it will be hard to keep F22
on schedule anyway, so even if dropping them now is unlikely to cause
problems, it is extra work and *might* cause some small issues, so
dropping them in rawhide is good enough.

FESCo != FPC. And people do have differening viewpoints on technical
matters, so sometimes some convincing is necessary. I'm fine with
that. And while I disagree with some decisions, compromise is an
unavoidable cost of working with other people.

Sure, they changed their previous decision. But the new decision goes
in the right direction, so let's accept it and move on.
