Actually, the more I'm thinking - I think having the 'raw' from in the
executable helps; it's the lowest barrier to use in a recovery environment,
etc. For something like verification, you'd like to have a happy GUI thing
that shows you what's specifically changed rather than just a cryptic
set of flags, so *that's* the tool you build on top of the lib.
