If you do that you get dependencies on all these tools. Some of the 
tools are not compatible with Apache license handling which makes it 
for us to distribute them.

Anyway it is a nice idea and I believe if you do that you should make one
small sub-project per project. If necessary you can place them at an 
code hosting site.

For this we need a good plugin strategy for our CLI tools, so that 
people can
easily add their own tools.
