Hi intrr,

Discussed this with a few people, they consider the script is needed / 
can still be useful when the weights have already been painted without 
using the new mirror mode weight painting.

I played with Blender, too, to see if it was useful (but of course we 
may be wrong) at least for this release.

This is from the original author, from an email to bf-scripts-dev:


"(...)I know there is the symmetry painting mode now in blender 2.4 but 
i think the script still can be useful. for example if mirroring is an 
afterthought or because the script works better for center groups 
without ".L" or ".R" suffixes (at least last time i tried it the 
symmetry painting mode didn't handle this well)."

Of course this is open for discussion, we remove it with my apologies :) 
if it's proved unneeded.
