    Mac menu bar tool to view the architecture of the running application

    It's a free, open-source utility that someone has generously released to the public. I find it useful. I often install and run lots of different apps and open-source things, and sometimes it's convenient to be able to just look at an icon in the menu bar to confirm whether something is running under Rosetta or not. Other people find it useful too. Just because you don't have a use for it, doesn't mean nobody else in the world does either.
