It is best to have packages that run on all platforms.  The number of
in a package is not an important determinant of usefulness.

What exactly do you require from the "kent utils"?  Have you checked
for relevant functionality?

You would get best guidance if you identified a github repo where your
package is being developed.  If you are concerned about exposure, you can
invite a developer as a confidential evaluator/consultant.  I would be
to play this role if necessary.
