The opinion on this package has not changed. However, if you cannot move the objects
to a real LMT tablespace, then you should use this package to convert an
existing tablespace from DMT to LMT. It might be time consuming to do it though.
However, at least it will still be beneficial than just leaving the tablespace
as DMT.
