A request once was made to implement padleft to pad left. Then more advanced
functions were wanted and existing functions (ab)used to achieve it.
I can imagine developers not wanting to natively those now wanted advanced
functions as it will likely lead to history repeating itself, namely some other
advanced thing wanted being implemented with these etc etc.

There are way too many scripts and templates that should be and can be written
as an Extension instead.

So how about opening bugs for the actual functionality wikipedians want instead
of requesting functions to achieve them in templates ? The same was done with
Babel, instead of creating lots and lots of templates and decentralized stuff
all over the place it was written into a native Extension and everybody's

I realise this is not a solution for everything though )
