Bitrot cannot be avoided... unless code is part of something that is
used and living it will turn to crap, not be known about, etc.  A large
collection of small aging unmaintained applets is not as great as it
might sound.  If you're going to spend any time on this, it needs to be
part of production test that we can all run, especially Regina and Wendy.

We need to replace DM1 / DM2 with something more normal otherwise it
will haunt us forever, I will write about some ideas to start that soon.
