I agree to the point where I dissuade people from creating stubs. I disagree
it comes to the question of deleting stubs. I fall firmly on the "when in
don't delete". And the doubt here shouldn't be an individual's doubt, but on
the doubt of everyone. And in the case of stubs, there will always be doubt,
because the determination of "useless" is not objective.
