If we can get the config tool v2 to build under cygwin (which we nearly 
can, but haven't yet :-( ) it will make it a lot easier to do this 
directly into the v2 tool, and maybe even to use that same code in a 
command line tool.

But ultimately it needs a bigger overhaul so that, for example, the 
various properties are exported into CDL too and can be used there.

There are a number of unnecessary restrictions in the code that "just" 
need to be fixed. It's open source so... :-).
