--- Comment #7 from Maarten Dammers <> ---
The main reason why I have a Toolserver account is to do complicated cross
database joins. 

For example: Give all items on Wikidata that don't have a claim which link to
an article on the Dutch Wikipedia using .

Of course these are not run very often, let alone part of a tool. These results
serve as input for a bot to do the actual work. 

If not all tables are available I can't do this anymore. Than I've lost the
most important functionality of Toolserver/Toollabs.

The fact that it's hard to maintain doesn't impress me. When the WMF started
the whole database endeavor and made a choice to not have copies but federation
this implication should have been taken into account.
