I couldn't agree more. I have mentioned this before on the mailing list. If
you go back through the archives you'll probably find it somewhere. But when
I mentioned it, I didn't seem to get much support from anyone else. And the
same thing appears to have happened this time around.

I would have thought that it was a tool/command that is used by many people.
It's an essential command in my line of work (albeit on Windows) and
couldn't imagine file management without it. I guess we're part of a rare
few that seem to find this command very useful.
