This is exactly a tool I need!
I wonder if the dev team has mind-reading abilities...

Is this command going to be supported in the default installation from now?
or is it a "stand-alone" utility that installs separately?
In case of the former - will there be a 1.6.13 release that will include it?
In case of the latter - any windows binaries out there?
