I tend to think that anything that is never going to be used should be
removed at least from the build environment, but preferably from CVS.

The problem with having them still in the tree is that it's not obvious
at a quick glance which tools are pieces aer still in use and worth
learning when you're a new person.  As an example, when James Morrison
was doing patch reviews and sending a patch nearly every week a frequent
response was "That code is never used".
