I'm a bit of a code horder. Tooling that is used during development, put 
it in. Just document it's a tool and not part of the runtime. Maybe 
things like performance change, and somebody else would like to retest 
the assumptions made before. Or somebody has a totally different setup 
than you, or just want to repeat the tests.

Or just code some poor mans persistence with jaxb. I've used it to 
inspect intermediate large datastructures with grep/awk/wc etc.

And a XSLT with FOP or docbook and you have a nice PDF.
