There will be a lot of angry people (and broken functionality, with no obvious
way to fix, replace, or remove it) if the only currently enabled way to
implement string parsing in wikicode on WMF wikis is simply disabled or
removed. It is not the template coders' fault for abusing the hell out of
padleft and padright, they are simply making do with the only tool they can
use, and would certainly use something else if it were available (and I do mean
they'd use pretty much *anything* else, as just about anything would be an
improvement over the current situation). It's not like padleft and company are
being blindly used either, these templates are massively optimized and however
bad it is, it could be far, far worse.
