Nice suggestions, but if a whole-sale refactoring of these tools is in
order, heading towards proplib rather than loads-of-ioctl's and
special-code-to-call-them would probably be better.  That still leaves
the question of "syntax modules", but that more restricted space could
be handled with some grammar specifier rule files, or maybe/mostly by
direct inspection of the proplib interface offered by the kernel.

just since we're passing around idle design mandates.. :-)
