Creating tools to address specific problems are very important and I
would love to see further collaboration in this area.

But as Matt said, some of these tools will be papering over problems. I
strongly encourage anybody writing these tools to file a bug about the
problem and even place a comment in your script pointing to the bug.
This will help ensure the problem is fixed in the longer term.

A wiki page has been created to track tools and bugs to attempt to
address these issues.¹
