I am sorry Ann but it does not sounds like right. The benchmark tools
are not big and the maintenance burden is bigger than the time spent
generating the images.

If tools are useless, we can remove them (good, less things is always
good) but split this in a subset is confusing. The 'core' concept is
subtle and difficult to define.

If the tools need to be split, this needs to be by tool type of use
(io, networking, graphics, ...) not 'core' or 'extended' are those are
not something we can say as right or wrong.

This needs to be send as a revert to the patch which has removed it.
Also include the information where it has been fixed as pointed in the
mailing list.
