Yes I am aware of the stuff that ccs_tool does and most of them will require
porting to the new API. Thing is that given the stage where we are now, we can
adapt the API and the tools to be more powerful. Something that is difficult to
achieve with ccs_tool because we don't exactly know how many clients it has out
there and we don't want to break them.
With a well known API change in the process we can expect that those tools will
be ported and as a benefit we can get rid of old compatibility bits that we are
carrying around.


I'm going to make him an offer he can't refuse.
