It's the tool that needs a rewrite, IMHO. Don't get me wrong, it's
taken us a long way and we wouldn't be as far forward in interoperable ID
authorship if it weren't for the existing tool. However, like all good
prototypes eventually you need to take what you've learned and rewrite
it to fix the problems. I've been tempted to take on the task myself,
