I wouldn't consider qmf a management tool. It's really a general purpose 
remoting library that happens to be used by us to build management 
tools, but may well be used for non management things.

Also, I'm not sure there is necessarily a need to distinguish between 
"management" and "tools". There seems to be a potential for overlap 
there between e.g. diagnostic tools and management tools, but maybe I'm 
missing some distinction you're thinking of?

Other than management and tools seeming a bit redundant/overlapping, I 
like this organization, however I don't really want to get mired in a 
big reorg discussion. Right now I'm just focusing on cleaning up the 
situation in the python dir.
