I don't think so. It's a little bit of a neat toy, but what value does
it actually have? It's not complete enough, without locators derived
in some reasonable manner, to provide any interesting automation above
and beyond manually looking at dmesg output. "foo at bar; bar at baz"
isn't hard to look for.
