Once the modifications mentioned in the other thread are done, it's highly
likely to not need modification. I split out nearly all the things that are
likely to change into an external toml config file, which should be easy to
modify/understand. It also has full-featured command line help and
autocompletion thanks to the structopt and clap libraries.
I'm not the only one who knows Rust if something goes wrong, and most of
the code is quite simple (though it could just be me that thinks that since
I've been working on Kazan which is *very* complex).
