In fact I started a ptool once, with the aim of doing operations on plists
but I didn't get very far. My more recent thought is to have the ptool as
a Lua engine that internalizes a plist and provides a scriptable
interface (a Lua table can easily hold a plist) but again, I haven't got
very far..

IMO a property list is not the XML that it is externalized as, it is the
list of properties contained inside.. any tool should work with them, not
the container.
