I have only a vague recollection of looking at this module... IIUC  
these are command line commands that connect to a running server and  
tell it to do something.  IIUC the server can be on a different  
machine?  Do they need more information about the server than its  
host and port?  I would think that the specific configuration of a  
server might be info we wouldn't want to publish let alone require  
for using the tools.... so I wonder what information from server.xml  
is actually needed?
