Then better keep it for now, unless there is a better home for it
prolly obsolete, since it seems to rely on HID and these have change
drastically since 3.4
That may still be useful on occassion...
I can't imagine why we would need that

That looks like a hamburg build specific thing... indeed prolly not used anymore
Why would we ever need that ?

yes that can go

yes, I believe that is a helper to generate patch for external libs.
I never used it myself, but taht should prolly be kept around.

I think that is also a remnant of hamburg special build system... I
don;t think that is used by anyone today
