FWIW I agree, I don't think the beanshell or rhino integration has ever
really been particularly useful. For RedHat's RHEL we've built without
them (--disable-scripting-beanshell --disable-scripting-javascript)
since 2019 and the same will be true for Fedora from F36 onward.

The rhino jar is from 2007/2008 when it was bumped to the last rhino
1.5 release version (by me) in the only change to it since the initial
version of 2003 and it's a similar story for bsh. IMO it's only
demoware for the at-that-time-new scripting framework.
