I'm open to suggestions.  The problem is, it is quite hard to describe such
a general tool in a concise summary.

I'm not too worried about the summary being slightly generic - we're not
trying to sell this package, just explain to people what it is for.  If
they're already looking at the header info, they've also got the description
available if the summary doesn't explain it thoroughly enough...

That said, I'm happy to change it if someone can come up with something
