Wipe comes from wipe 2.3.1 from http://wipe.sourceforge.net/.

As there doesn't seem to be any git repository, the tarball
was imported in git the subsequent commit added support for

Wipe is strongly needed as without it it's not very convenient
to securely delete files from the internal storage.

Without wipe, one would have to port GNU/Linux to the device
if it's not already done, or reuse the Replicant 11 kernel
otherwise, and run a distribution like Parabola to securely
erase files.
