Those look very handy.

Tangentially, this has made me realize that `ls tools` is getting
quite long now, is it worth a bit of reorganization? Most of the
scripts fall into one of the following categories:

- testing and verification (check*, test*, valgrind-wireshark, cppcheck, etc.)
- generator tools (lemon, idl, make-*, ncp2222, etc)
- misc developer utils (backport-rev, gen-bugnote, svnadd, win-setup*, etc)

Thoughts?
