No, the wiki entry says that it is deprecated, because is does not do
all the things it should do. It does require the use of the script given
at the bottom of the page, to poke the filesize into the database.
I didn't know enough perl to poke the main script, so I wrote the kludge
script to do the same thing.
Together they work.
