Most toolserver tool authors just don't bother
applying for commit
access for whatever reason. Most tools also either perform badly
and/or would need to be rewritten to meet coding standards.
Toolserver roots routinely have to kill processes for using up
unreasonable amounts of resources.
How many of those tools would stand a chance as extensions
of not being disabled in $wgMiserMode? If such a small fea-
ture as the namespace filter in Special:Linksearch risks
server meltdown (bug #10593), I doubt more complex searches
are on the horizon.
