It seems we had broad support for this motion and no negative reactions, so
I have gone ahead and created the Tools directory and migrated my
"fdorastutil" to it from the Providers/GDAL/testwrk directory.

I created a small README.TXT in the Tools directory where I hope new tools will
be listed, and to keep their status clear.


Haris - feel free to move your fdo2fdo stuff in here, and when I get a
chance I'll see what I can do to get the commandline version building on
