I am in favor of including such scripts in general.

Some time back, I snuck in a tutorial to de-obfuscate Kerio Connect "hashes".

https://github.com/magnumripper/JohnTheRipper/blob/bleeding-jumbo/doc/Auditing-Kerio-Connect.md

Also, commercial tools like Passware already include functionality on
similar lines. E.g. Passware can grab disk encryption keys from
memory. Ideally, I would similar scripts/tools to be included and
maintained in Volatility
(https://github.com/volatilityfoundation/volatility) but I haven't
looker deeper into this stuff yet.
