I think you're reading more into it than I was actually asking.

If they don't work, fine. But there sure is an awful lot of them. Have
you tried them? Which ones don't work? I mean, I have the capability
of *removing* broken code from our system, if none of this stuff
works, then I really do want to know.

But if you haven't tried, then I'd also like to know that as well. We
have a lot of code out there, if something is broke, then by all means
*tell me*.
