What is the Mootools 1.2.4 upgrade plugin?

From Joomla! Documentation

I had to deactivate the plugin because it was in conflict with Joomlart's Mega menu. I don't know however if it's safe to uninstall.

I have issues when using:

System - Mootools Upgrade System - jQuery++ Integrator by

With Showplus / Sigplus and mod_twitterfeed. The mootools upgrade didn't seem to have any effect on the problem which causes a blank screen to appear in Joomla site.
