Now I prefer hugo's idea - implement a command line tool first, but at the
same time,
you are very right, I think it should cover the most of these features you
listed above.

I plan to use Python to implement such tool first, and after it is
implemented in a
good status, we can try to use Qt UI wigdets to implement such Visual tool
will encapsulate the command line tool.

OK. It maybe added in my weekly plan.
