I don't think this deserves to be seen as a "proper" bug. ng0 is replacing sed with awk, some like to replace Python with bash and others Bash with Python, or C with Rust or Rust with Go. Whatever. Let's NOT make re-implementing stuff in other languages a goal in itself. *IF* there is a particularly atrocious bit of code that could be done better in another language, then fixing THAT bit of code should be done. But not a general "all in language X to be replaced by language Y" _just_ because someone prefers Y over X. We should focus on fixing defects, improving maintainability and security, but not do a language war.

Resolving as "no change required", because as far as I see it, no _further_ change is *required*. Not saying specific code-cleanups might not still happen, but at least right now I see no scripts that are in urgent need of full-scale replacement.
