I got tired of viewing the output of xenstore-ls with less when trying to 
debug things, so I knocked together a simple little graphical app using PyQt 
which displays the contents of Xenstore as a tree.

It should apply to xen-unstable.  It has to be run out of tools/xsview/ 
because I've not yet added an install operation.

Right now you can view the XenStore tree and get / set values in there.  At 
some point in the future I'll probably add code for creating / deleting nodes 
in the tree, and possibly other things.  Should be useful for testing and / 
or debugging.

Hope that it's useful to folks, but it's not very thoroughly tested so please 
don't blame me if it makes your computer explode / causes gerbils to fall 


Dave: Just a question. What use is a unicyle with no seat?  And no pedals!
Mark: To answer a question with a question: What use is a skateboard?
Dave: Skateboards have wheels.
Mark: My wheel has a wheel!
