I have a guess on that front ... there is nothing in our documentation
that says anybody should run it, and the script itself gives no
indication of what it does, when it should be run, or how to run it.
That might just reduce uptake a little bit...:)

I increasingly believe that anything we add to scripts/ should start
with a "usage" header describing why it exists and how to make it do its
thing. That would be a welcome addition to Adding
something to Documentation/process/license-rules.html would be a nice
