Well, I dont think we want to get rid of that on Linux/OSX where GNU coreutils
is a pretty natural thing to be available there. For Windows in the end, a lot
of that should possible to be covered by MSBuild:


But all of that is still quite a way off and not too urgent. But we should be

with what can be expected to be there on the target platform and which is
unlikely to change/go away").
