I could be wrong, but I thought libadmin is nowhere near as useful as
the CLI utilities. I would expect it to continue to be until it reaches
the point where the CLI utilities can be implemented on top of it,
rather than as an unmaintainable parallel implementation.

I would like to do that, but, well, it will take some time.
